Laughing at Alzheimers

Last week Variety reported that Will Ferrell had signed onto a comedy project to play Ronald Reagan with Alzheimer's disease.


He was immediately met with two open letters from Reagan's children on why this was a bad idea.  In a rare moment of good judgement, Ferrell walked away from the project.

There are 3 million cases of Alzheimer's disease in the US every year.  Three million families ripped apart.  Three million lives stolen.  There's not a damned thing funny about it.  It is sorrow, expense, sadness, and pain.  Even after the loved one dies, the disease eats away at those left behind.

Comedy gold.

It is shocking to me that one can hate one's political opponents so much that one would entertain something like this.  

And to think that conservatives are called the practitioners of hate...
