This is a twist. A gay group sporting cowboy hats and tight jeans wants to succeed from the U.S.
Douglas MacKinnon is a conservative columnist and former Reagan administration aide and he has written with a new book calling for Southern states to secede. While working for the president, he developed a close relationship with Ron Reagan, Jr — an admittedly gay political pundit.
Ron Reagan, Jr. said he was flattered but shocked that the secessionist wants to name the new country after him. “I remember Dougie, ” Ron said. “He was always coming around with the latest show-tunes albums and wanting to show me the new shoes he just bought, but he really wasn’t my type. We went out a few times, but that was about it.”
