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.

Today In Dickitude

"Learn how to be an American"?

That's the counterattack?

The "American formula for success"?  What?  Deregulation and tax cuts, John?  You were chief of staff for Bush I, who was not exactly known for his macroeconomic acumen.

I think the GOP should change their mascot from the elephant to this guy:

UPDATE:  I like Chait's take on it:

John Sununu, former chief of staff to George H.W. Bush, unloaded a classic stream-of-consciousness cultural attack on President Obama that managed to weave together a string of buzzwords from conservative fever dreams:
He has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn't be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago.
With this single sentence, Sununa wins the Republican Mad Libs contest for all time.
