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.

Chait Vs Ryan

Despite Chait's lame mini-culpa over Iraq, he remains an invaluable voice when it comes to the massive fraudster that is Paul Ryan.

If Chait has one insight - which appears in this piece - it is that the modern GOP cares truly about one thing: reducing taxes on the wealthy.  As they move slowly towards same sex marriage and immigration reform, they will fight to the last man to make sure that the wealthy are not inconvenienced by the commonwealth.
