Did Reagan call W a ne'er-do-well?

The following quote has been passing around and being attributed to former President Ronald Reagan's personal diaries:

A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.

While this would be great fodder for further criticism of George Bush, it's not a direct quote from Reagan. Apparently it was a 'joke' written in a column by Michael Kinsley, who used to be the Editor at The New Republic.

Oh well. Good thing there's plenty of other things to criticize him on.

This is very funny. Unfortunately, it would have been redacted from Reagan Diaries before they ever saw the light of day.
