The Republican Effort to Make Ronald Reagan As Queer As a $50 Bill

We’ve been down the “give Ronald Reagan his own bill” parade before, except last time the GOP was pushing for the fortieth president to adorn the $10 bill, giving Alexander Hamilton the boot. Now Rep. Patrick McHenry, of North Carolina, says he has 13 co-sponsors for a bill to put Regan on the $50 bill, firing Ulysses S. Grant. It would give hip-hop artists something new to rap about (Benjamins are so 1990s), and AIDS activists something to busy themselves with.
