In today's Tweet Beat, David Hasselhoff cuddles a wombat, Renee Baio wishes Ronald Reagan a happy birthday, Stephen Fry has the shits and people sound off on the Superbowl.
Oh Ronald Reagan? You mean that guy who was elected to look out for the best interests of the American people, who refused to even say the word, 'AIDS' in public until the end of his second term, after over 20,000 people he had sworn to protect had died painfully and needlessly? The guy who looked the other way and allowed it to become an epidemic, dragging his feet to fund educational or health programs to address it because he didn't want to risk his own neck?
That guy? That's the guy you think was the best POTUS, Ms. Baio? I mean, I get that no one gets through the presidency without some sizable fuckups, but a whole lot of them avoided doing things that force people to step back and ask if there's a grey area for genocide.
I wish I'd known ahead of time. I feel like I should be doing some thing extra-gay today.
