My favorite Reagan irony

"Despite Mr. Reagan's image as the champion of small government, one of the ironies in Washington today is that the biggest federal government building constructed since the Pentagon -- 3.1 million square feet of offices, conventional halls and retail office -- bears the name: The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center."

-- from a Monday, June 7, Wall Street Journal article

great one! here are two quotes straight from the mouth of the beast to flesh out the irony:
"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."
and
"No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!"
