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.

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

If 44% of Americans don't want to raise the debt ceiling, then 44% of Americans don't have a freaking clue what the debt ceiling is or what failing to lift it would accomplish.

In the past, we could rely on our representatives - steeped in the expertise and understanding that comes from working in government - to make the wise and considered choice.

But most of the House is not just as stooopid and uninformed as the average Americans.

Bless their hearts.
