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.

Paul Ryan's greatest political skill is the simple and clear way that he lies his well-toned ass off.

The GOP has stones, I give them that.  They are completely, brazenly lying.  It's truly stunning.

Part of my problem - as someone who follows politics too closely for my own good - is that I really hate hypocrisy.

Which is why I'm a Democrat, I guess.

UPDATE: Marshall nails my concerns.
