So apparently the extent of the comparison went like this:
He made the comparison Sunday when asked if Palin is "divisive."

"I think anybody that has the visibility that Sarah has is obviously going to have some divisiveness," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union." "I remember that a guy named Ronald Reagan used to be viewed by some as divisive."

Incidentally, though, I think that the comparison between Palin and "a guy named Ronald Reagan" is pretty good. Neither are/were terribly bright, and neither have/had the qualities of a good president. Oh and, incidentally: Reagan was rather divisive...though not by the standards of contemporary Republican idols, I suppose.

The whole GOP seems to have lost it. The inane Reagan worship I try to ignore. But the delusional belief that Sarah Palin is a serious person is simply unforgivable.

Is your headline intended to compare Palin instead with the evil daughter of a deluded old man deposed from power Winst? Because that would certainly be a more apt comparison...

a. Fixed.

b. Indeed that would be a more fitting analogy...

I'll take Reagan over Palin, any day. Reagan actually kept a somewhat interesting diary published a few years back, and he passed the first START treaty.

Palin's diary--the mind reels.

Reagan had myriad faults, but he was a lot better than GWB. I don't see that for Palin
