Politics of the Past

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett


Yesterday I posted this image to Facebook:


Once upon a time I worked in radio. And I got to cover the 1984 GOP convention. I was also writing a humor column at the time, and I picked up a few odd souvenirs that I thought might make good fodder because, well, why not?

I also picked this guy up:

Both say something about the times. The top button also played music, apparently. 

While I was biding my time waiting on a package I decided to see if I could find the article in question. Dang it, it's not in the electronic archives. But I did find something else from 1988, which seems oddly appropriate. I'll post it in a separate entry.
