Quote of the Day

Days Until Bush Leaves Office = 64

This one, from Tod Lindberg in today's Washington Post, puts a fork into the GOP's post election soufflé that Reaganism, or conservatism, or whatever is the euphemism of the day for "We're not really as dead as Herbert Hoover" is still alive and well and awaiting its inevitable comeback just over the next electoral horizon:

"I can see how supporting a bailout for the financial sector but opposing a bailout for Detroit is more conservative than supporting a bailout for both, but if that's the distinction that makes you a conservative these days, liberals ought to be pretty happy with their prospects."

"Oh, but wait!" you can hear GOP apologists nearly shouting, "Wait! Obama will overreach! And then voters will come thundering back to us! The GOP will rise again!"

Good luck with that as your reason for getting up in the morning, fellas. Enjoy your time in Wasilla. You've earned it.

Actually, the real conservatives don't support a bailout for any of them.

Both Sen. Inhofe and Sen. Shelby have opposed government intervention in any of this and I agree with this. We are a free market society and these companies should live or die by the decisions that they make.

Don't try and lump the moderates with an R next to their names as conservatives, that's like trying to stick the liberal tag on Lieberman when he was a Democrat.
