Ditch Dutch?

This should go over real well among Indiana Republicans:

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels elicited several hushed gasps and raised eyebrows late last week as he lectured a conservative crowd that it was "time to let Ronald Reagan go."

[. . .]

Nostalgia is fine and Reagan's economic plan was good,” Daniels said. “But we need to look towards the future rather than staying in the past.” Daniels added that the GOP needed to work on uniting behind Sen. John McCain instead of constantly comparing the Arizona senator with the Gipper.

How well? Just check out some of the comments. A lot of them are like this: "Daniels is an ass. He has neither the brains nor guts of Reagan. He, like most modern Republicans are nothing more than democrats (socialist)-lite."
