This, Allegedly, From The Gipper…

Sitting down with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at a summit meeting, President Reagan supposedly told Gorbachev this:

Two guys are standing in line waiting for a couple of vodkas. Finally, one becomes exasperated and says, “This is ridiculous. I’m going to go and kill Gorbachev.”

The guy leaves and comes back 20 minutes later.

“Did you do it?” his comrade asks.

“No,” he says. “The line was even longer than this one!”

(And another Reagan red-tinged bon mot:)

How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.

And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
