Something to Keep in Mind

Schwenkler knows I love him, so I can ask, in response to these posts, what he would have written about this Reagan gaffe (as described by the late, great John Patrick Diggins):
A hostile journalist, determined to reveal his ignorance, asked Reagan if he knew who the leader was of some obscure country that was giving the United States trouble. "No, I don't know his name," replied Reagan, "but after the election he'll sure know mine."
Yet surely love for Reagan is more than the product of "a no-dissenters-allowed policy of lockstep groupthink?"
