The Reagan Diaries
A moment I’ve been dreading. George brought his ne’re-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I’ll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they’ll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work. Entry dated May 17, 1986

Via J-Walk. We’ll see if the quote is accurate. The street date on the book is tomorrow.

Update

Thought it sounded too good to be true.
