When Republicans go on and on about the glory of the Reagan administration, I get somewhat confused, mostly because my memories of the era are largely focused on the game shows I used to watch then and not on political history. However, now that artist Jason Heuser has captured the historical moment when the late President rode a velociraptor while brandishing a machine gun, likely attacking communists or people in Grenada or something. I totally get it. Gentle jelly-bean loving grandpa by day, American bad-ass by night. It all makes so much more sense now.
