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.

Oh, Sandy

Should we politicize Sandy faster than Greased Lightning?


Chait says yes, and I agree with him.

The GOP wants to gut FEMA.  That's on the record.  That's Ryan's legislative record and Romney's record of public statements.

As Chait says:
The GOP is the party arguing for splurging on a long vacation at the beach rather than repairing the roof. Naturally, they want to have this argument only when it’s sunny and never when it’s raining. There’s no reason to accommodate them.
