Giuliani consultant Patrick Ruffini has launched a website to harvest e-mails for — well, I’m not sure what exactly.

Then again, considering the people we’re dealing with here… Only in the world of the cons is a quote from Ronald Reagan somehow the answer to a failed war, a failed strategy and a miserable failure of a presidency.
UPDATE: It’s like conservative columnist David Brooks saw this coming.
Conservatives have allowed a simplistic view of Ronald Reagan to define the sacred parameters of thought. Reagan himself was flexible, unorthodox and creative. But conservatives have created a mythical, rigid Reagan, and any deviation from that is considered unholy.
