Following the right wing's predictable freak out this week over the events in Ukraine, and the equally predictable attacks on President Obama, demanding that he "step up his game" or the pundits over on Faux "news" raving about how wonderful Vladimir Putin is and how he's outmaneuvered the president, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took them to task for their historical revisionism on their hero, St. Ronnie Reagan.

Stewart did a particularly good job reminding the viewers just how utterly ridiculous it is that the likes of Oliver North has got his mug on the television telling everyone how wonderfully Reagan would have handled things in Ukraine. Been there, done that Ollie.

Can you help us out?
