(Appropriately) Mocking Mitt's Reagan Love

You probably read Yglesias, so you've probably already seen him mocking these Romeny slides - the Reagan Zone of Economic Freedom (which is neither a zone, nor in any way connected to Ronald Reagan) and his chart noting that the only 3 things that apparently affected US economic prosperity since the 1920's were Smoot-Hawley, GATT and Reagan's election (which is nonsense as a general matter, and the data Mitt uses shows you could easily make the same argument about Clinton's election) - but if you haven't, click on the links to be amused and a little disgusted.
