REAGAN BASHING, unfortunately
28 May 2007 | by (Botswana) – See all my reviews

The RIDICULOUS REAGAN BASHING in the x-mas video sours the whole experience, partly because one doesn't expect something that IGNORANT from an otherwise APPARENTLY bright person like Yankovic. As anyone who's the least bit interested in truth knows, Reagan passionately LOATHED nukes!--read the diaries, EVERY (even LEFTIST) biography, ET AL.

Even if Yankovic was truly stupid enough to believe that nonsense in the 80's (though it was obviously false AT THE TIME)-as an artist, if I had published anything 'slanderous' (you don't get more SERIOUSLY slanderous than imputing LOVE of war/nukes, much less to a person who passionately LOATHES them) and it ''turned out'' to be EMPIRICALLY, BLATANTLY, UTTERLY FALSE I would re-edit/cut that clip entirely!

We must demand the same honourable behaviour from Yankovic. To not so do, BESMIRCHES THE ENTIRETY OF YANKOVIC'S CREATIONS. Especially this DVD.
