On this day in 1984, Mary Lou Retton wins gold
Before Gabby Douglas, there was Mary Lou.  Here, the first American woman to win the Olympic gold medal in the all-around gymnastics competition stands shoulder-to-head with President Ronald Reagan.
Between Mary Lou Retton and Gabrielle “the Flying Squirrel” Douglas, there have been only two other American all-around champions; Douglas is the first to come home with both this and the team gold.
Photo from the Reagan Library: President Reagan posing with Mary Lou Retton and the 1984 U.S. Olympic team at the Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, California. 8/13/84.

This photo of the Gipper makes me smile. How many other U.S. presidents could pull off a red jacket? How many would even try?

America’s 40th president is credited with many things — the end of the Cold War, the rebirth of the conservative movement, the popularity of the Jelly Belly jellybean — but one of Ronald Reagan’s less-noted accomplishments had to do with the wonders that sprouted from his skull. No, not his intelligence. His hair. 
Ronald Reagan’s Magical Hair 

Man, Ronald Reagan was even Reaganing his hair game.

For those of you going Reaganing later

  • Liz Lemon: "Why are you wearing a tux?"
  • Jack Donaghy: "It's after 6. What am I, a farmer?"

I don’t get into partisan politics too much, but this is HILARIOUS!

FACT: Ronald Reagan is a style icon for Republicans.
