According to the media, Geraldine Ferraro was remembered for…

breaking barriers by becoming the first female VP candidate on a major party ticket.

I was in elementary school when she ran, but some of us remember her for something far more important: losing an election by the biggest landslide in nearly 50 years.  Lucky for everybody on the planet, the Democrats lost and Reagan won…the economy took off, the Berlin wall came down, we won the Cold War, and the world would go on to see its greatest victory for liberty and largest economic expansion in history.

It’s a good thing Ferraro didn’t break any bigger barriers.

Now where’s Ronald Reagan when you need him…
