Events of August 22 in THE REAGAN YEARS:

1983:  Barbara Honegger, who recently called the Reagan administration's policies toward women "a sham" in an editorial, resigns her job at the justice department. A spokesman calls her a "low-level Munchkin." She responds three days later by showing reporters a picture of herself with the President, saying "This is me with the Wizard of Oz."
1984:  Nancy Reagan attempts to refute Michael Deaver's story that her husband sometimes dozes off during cabinet meetings by saying, "All I know is that I cannot get him to take a nap."
1984:  Nominating Ronald Reagan to be nominated by the Republican Convention, Senator Paul Laxalt asserts, "The Reagan administration has done more for the needy than any in all history."
1985:  White House staffers ask Sylvester Stallone not to present Reagan with a Rambo poster.
1988:  George Bush and Dan Quayle speak before the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Bush tells them that Quayle "didn't burn his draft card and he damn sure didn't burn the American flag", so there's nothing to be ashamed of. Quayle says, "After the last 72 hours no one can say I never faced combat."
