Er, I wasn't sure quite where to post this.


A vial said to contain a sample of the late US President Ronald Reagan's blood has been withdrawn from sale by an online auction house. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation had expressed outrage over the auction, in which bidding had reached over $30,000 (£19,000). Guernsey-based PFC Auctions said in a statement that the vial would now be donated to the Reagan foundation.

That's just wrong on so many levels.

A relic of St. Ron.

Maybe Dracula is in for some tasty neo-con, commie baiter, actor blood.

Hasn't that been every president since Ron?

Union crushing, finance deregulatory, regime changing, defence/(UK spelling) war spending maniacs.

Well if that was mine
I would not hand it over as a gesture
It would still be for sale with some free publicity
To push the bidding price up
Outrage i'm all for it

Remake of Thunderbird's?! Hilar.

What exactly is the Reagan foundation which is to take possession of this blood? Some conservative preaching think tank?

What do they intend to do with it?

If I had to guess, I'd say build a shrine around it, or possibly use it in a ritual with an Elder God to create Zombie Reagan.

Here is some more information on the story.


PFC Auctions, based on the Channel Island of Guernsey, said the owner had agreed to donate the item to the California-based Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation -- which had threatened legal action to stop the sale.

The auction house said it had "negotiated with the consignor to arrange for the item to be withdrawn from the auction and donated to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, a considerable financial gesture from the consignor". Bidding in the auction, which was due to conclude at 1900 GMT on Thursday, had reached $30,086 (23,560 euros), PFC Auctions said.

The five-inch (12.5-centimetre) long, half-inch diameter vial dates from the March 30, 1981 assassination attempt, when Reagan was shot and wounded as he left the Washington Hilton Hotel.
