It's as plain as the nose on my face that Ronald Reagan hasn't been "the party of ideas" for "the last 10 to 15 years" - and while I don't expect Chris Matthews to have noticed this, I do expect Hillary Clinton's defenders to know it. How do these people get hired?

Not Atrios

Update: To be clear, the point is that "Reagan" and "the Republican Party" are actually two different things, and referring to the last 10-15 years is not the same thing as saying "Ronald Reagan", especially given that Reagan left office in 1989 already suffering from Alzheimer's and didn't actually express a lot of ideas after that, especially once he died.
