Former first lady Nancy Reagan joined California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in Simi Valley for a ceremonial signing of a bill making it Ronald Reagan Day every Feb. 6 in California.
The late president — and former California governor — was born Feb. 6, 1911, so the 100th anniversary of his birth is approaching.
The 89-year-old former first lady, wearing a yellow Kill Bill pantsuit and balancing on a samurai sword and the governor's arm, walked into the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. She smiled as Schwarzenegger sat at a desk and ceremoniously (read: faked it) signed a pair of bills Tuesday morning. He officially signed them July 19. ... Schwarzenegger told the audience, "Rona'd Weagan is my Ero."
The governor says Ronald Reagan Day will finally allow schools to teach about someone important, Reagan, and be a day in which Californians can remember his legacy (which is, among other bad ass things, that he once stood next to a Sportster in 1987. I also like, "We begin the bombing in five minutes.")
Other lame ass Californians honored with official days include lettuce picker Cesar Chavez, gay rights crusader Harvey Milk (remember the Twinkie Killer Defense? That was a hoot!) and environmental icon... bla bla bla, it's not even important enough to go through. End News Report.
