John Cusack Not a Fan of Ronald Reagan

Actor John Cusack took a turn guest-blogging at BoingBoing today with some fun results. Channeling his inner Hunter S. Thompson, Cusack unleashed one of the better anti-Ronald Reagan rants we’ve read in quite some time, and pulled this bizarre video from the 1985-86 Superbowl.

Cusack’s thoughts:

As you can see in this video now, watching the performance was like diving into an ocean of bad fashion and forced smiles. Dr. Pepper dancing and Mom Jeans from shore to shore… pre-Prozac in motion…. military ballet… Mandatory cheers and quasi-religious cult patriotics… the glory of the empire. A choreographed tribute to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. A celebration of diversity, unity, and fluorescent leggings.

Meanwhile, Reagan was dumping all the mentally ill and vets out on the streets to die, as a direct result of his policies.
