It’s almost like connect the dots. Of course, that’s why they’re called “talking points”:
- Politico covers the latest conservative argument, that wealth and conscience don’t mix.
- Steve Benen explains the obvious about that argument.
- And Tom Tomorrow dusts fourteen years off an old cartoon, for obvious reasons.
- Meanwhile, Rob Goodman hopes to intellectually validate equal criticism against all political players, the feelgood fallacy also known as “both sides do it”.
- And why not get some election coverage from Karl Frisch, a Democratic strategist trying to explain what’s wrong with Republicans.
- If that doesn’t do it for you, try the latest Obama-hates-Christians “war on Christmas” lament. (At least it’s not as mortifying as Rush Limbaugh’s astonishing defense of the Lord’s Resistance Army.)
Or, it’s just another day in the life. Something about decadence. Something about the fall of Rome. Something about what we do with what we are given.
“Let me say this is as clearly and as simply as I can: Republicans did not overreach. What they did is who they are. It is what they stand for. It is what they campaign on.
To claim otherwise would be like saying fish live under water because they suffer from unquenchable thirst.”
