Let it not be said that the Democrats oppose tax cuts. They just prefer that tax cuts be reserved for their guys. What?
Matt Welch takes apart Andrew Sullivan on the “cash for clunkers” program. As I commented on the other site, I was sympathetic to this program initially, but the commentary from Edmunds (hardly a right-wing thinktank) and the notation that this will mainly keep poor people from buying old cars has turned me against it. Remember when government programs vomiting out tons of unaccountable cash was a bad thing? Sigh. I miss 1987.
So much for Obama lightening up on immigration. Wait! It must be a secret communist conspiracy to establish Republica del Norte!
I never thought I’d praise Pat Leahy. But there you go.
