Reagan’s Bind
 n.— «“Reagan’s Bind” describes the conundrum in which one is unable to explain or defend one’s actions except by ascribing them to either: A) malicious intent; or B) glaring stupidity and/or incompetence. To be caught in Reagan’s Bind is like being pinned in wrestling, or checkmated in chess. Actually, in terms of chess, it’s a bit more like realizing that the knight placing your king in check is simultaneously threatening your queen.» —“Reagan’s Bind” by Fred Clark Slacktivist Dec. 12, 2003.
