Sometimes planned, sometimes spontaneous, humor was President Reagan's secret weapon.
He used humor to disarm his opposition and unify his support.
He used humor to heal and create harmony.
He used humor to humbly poke fun at himself, as well as his opponents.
One of the many reasons we loved Ronald Reagan was because we could laugh with him.
And while we were laughing, we often saw life a little clearer.
We realized how much we have in common as Americans, and that working together we could make America a better place.
