Le plus ça change...

Guess who said this -- extra points for when:

The biggest threat to America today is not communism; it's moving America towards a fascist theocracy and everything that has happened during the ______ administration. Is steering us right down that pipe...When you have a government that prefers a certain moral code derived from a certain religion and that moral code turns into legislation to suit one certain religious point of view and if that code happens to be very, very right wing almost toward Attila the Hun.
Give up? It was Frank Zappa, talking about the Reagan (you remember him, old guy, drool cup, couldn't zip up his own pants?) Maladministration on Crossfire in 1986. Twenty years ago. And during the course of the interview, he told then-resident wingnut John Lofton "you can kiss my ass".

Over at the Crooks and Liars video blog they have the full story, plus a video of Zappa's appearance. What a loss to us all when he died.

The more things change...
