Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

No Sh!t Sherlock

"Hey, Tom Friedman!  Get a grip!"

Anyone paying even a soupcon of attention over the past three decades should cede that the GOP does not care one whit about deficit reduction.  They care exclusively about shrinking the size of government, which is not the same thing, especially when you couple spending cuts in domestic programs with massive tax cuts and increases in defense spending.

I don't know why "sensible centrist" pundits who blather on about third parties and "centrism" can't see this.  The pattern is clear as day.
