Well, as Riley was kind enough to find, it appears we have found the idiot -- and he's a Webb Campaign Staffer. From the Roanoke times:
"There's one thing Ronald Reagan and I have in common," Saunders said. "We both endorse Jim Webb."
Not even "would have endorsed", but actually "endorse". Webbies said nobody would be stupid enough to think Reagan would endorse Webb, since Reagan is dead.
Maybe Saunders is channeling Reagan's spirit.
