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.

Devilish Details

Patty Murray and the Zombie Eyed Granny Starver have apparently reached a tentative agreement on a budget that might rollback part of the Sequester.

The Sequester was designed to hit social services first, then hit the military.  That second part is coming into play now and everyone is freaking the hell out.  Except the Tea Party, because they are morons.

So there is a concerted effort to do "something" to ameliorate that coming evisceration.

But before everyone gets together to sign the bi-partisan kumbaya, we should see the details first.  We should see what spending is restored.  We clearly won't see any meaningful new revenues, but whatever.  The important thing is that we end some of the harmful effects of sequestration.

But even if it's a decent deal, it will have to pass the House.

And those sons of bitches are CRAZY.
