The joke is that these same techniques were used in most/all TV interviews, ostensibly to save time. It’s trivially easy to twist the message that way, though.

Of course now with Fox News / Breitbart it doesn’t even matter what people say.

Editing aside, I’ve always sided with Lee Marvin. Reagan always was kind of a tool.

Heard this sampled on Black Grape’s 1997 single “Get Higher”, never knew where it came from until now.

Damnit, beat me to it! I had this recorded off the radio back in high school and could never find out who/what it was until doing some new digging a few minutes ago, only to find out you did the work for me… :wink:

It originally appeared as a flexidisc in RAW Magazine. RAW Magazine being one of the few things that made the 1980s tolerable.

Just clamp the stamp!

I’ll get to that right after I finish drinking this can of poison meat.
