Ronald Reagan’s Birthday Party

David Almasi and his wife Nancy had a birthday party for Ronald Reagan this week. They’ve shared a picture of the cake.

Here’s something we wrote in commemoration of Reagan’s birthday in 2005. I particularly draw your attention to this link to a picture of a rainbow’s pot of gold falling right on the house where Reagan was born on February 6, 1911. The picture was snapped at 4 PM local time on November 4, 1980, the day Reagan was first elected president. By 4 PM, the public had probably put him over the top, although the race wouldn’t be called for another three hours or so yet.

I worked for the Reagan-Bush campaign in 1980. Reagan won so quickly, we didn’t even have time to get to the victory party before the networks called it.

I’d tell you we minded but… we didn’t. It was a great day.
