So you don't think that modern Conservatives haven't converted the reality of Reagan into a highly idealized mythological "package" that is quite a bit removed from the reality? I hear a lot about the fiscal hawk, Commie-hatin', liberal evisceratin', Reagan these days but very little of the guy who used expansive government spending as a tool to bring down the Soviet Union, who was chastised by Conservatives of the time for being so cozy with Gorbachev, who was friends with and worked closely with Tip O'Neill in a bipartisan way that seems almost unheard of today, and who sold arms to the Iranian theocracy.
Which is not to say, before anybody goes down this route because I know someone will, that Reagan's actions should be compared to Che's. But to argue that only "liberals" mythologize their heroes is, frankly, absurd.
Which, going back to your original point, who here exactly has touted a mythological interpretation of Che Guevara?
Don't forget Reagan "cut and ran" from Lebanon. (Correctly, IMO.) Just imagine the "interpretation" of this we'd get here--and on the e-mails that feed some here--were it Carter, Clinton, or Obama who did this.
The number of people wearing Che gear making his personal political statement number high into the ones. The number of people here who have touted Che's revolutionary ideals is, I think, zero. About the same number around the country are wearing Jesse James gear and are really personally promoting a guerrilla continuance of the Civil War, a return to slavery, and the supremacy of states rights.
