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.

Ezra Klein Is Confused

Klein can't figure out what the GOP position on the sequester is, because what they are saying makes no sense in any rational world.

My guess is that he's being subtly snarky.  The Republican position makes perfect sense if we accept the fact that the entire GOP Caucus is being held hostage to people like Louis Gohmert.

Use that calculus and the entire nonsensical position of the House makes perfect sense.

Booman makes this clear.
