Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for November 01, 1980
Roland: Our tour ends in the preconsciousness, the mind's great staging area. It is here that Reagan's subconscious thoughts lie poised for admittance to full cosciousness, where they can then be analyzed and edited. In recent years, however, campaign pressures have forced Reagan to save time by circumventing this last critical stage of the intellectual process. As a consequence, many of Reagan's ideas on subjects ranging from tree pollution to the Ku Klux Klan find full vocal expression the instant they occur to him. Our political folklore is the richer for it. I'm Roland Hedley.
