Funny of Die: Presidential Reunion.

The politics are sound and the idea is undeniably clever, I just wish this Ron Howard sketch was a little funnier. Ironically, the one non-Saturday Night Live cast member, Jim Carrey, steals the show as Ronald Reagan. His last line is a winner. Of course, if you're wondering why Carrey (who of course got his start on In Living Color) is playing Reagan, alas the answer is because it was Phil Hartman who played 'the Gipper' for much of the 80s and 90s. None the less, financial regulatory reform is the one issue that could bring together the 'racist, reactionary' tea-baggers and the 'brain-dead, terrorist-loving' socialists, if only they could stop demonizing each other long enough to realize as much. Enjoy...
