Conservatives are shocked, shocked, that Hillary Clinton acknowledges the help of professional writers in her new book. TBOGG, quite sensibly, responds by pointing to An American Life, Ronald Reagan's last Great Communication. Did the Gipper write it himself? Well, do yourself a favor: If you're in a big bookstore, check out the acknowledgment of the writers in Hillary's book. Then go find a copy of Reagan's book and note the similarities in what Reagan says about Robert Lindsey, author of the bestseller The Falcon and the Snowman and collaborator on Marlon Brando's memoir. Now do you think Ronnie wrote his own book?
