US History 1973 - 2014 Commonplace Book: Lecture 10, Reaganomics & Domestic Policy in Reagan's First Term

In a 1976 episode, Archie [Bunker, on the TV show All in the Family], brooding over the Democrat Jimmy Carter's White House victory, may have had the last laugh when he warned that liberals would not be so happy when Ronald Reagan won in 1980. The prophesy was supposed to be an attempt at absurdly dark humor.

—Jefferson Cowie, Stayin' Alive, p. 195
