Keynesianism For Me, But Not For Thee
Keynes For The Military; F*ck You For Everybody Else


The contemporary GOP more-or-less just lives a big, fat contradiction. It used to be kind of a perverse thrill to find something so close to an outright contradiction in a political opponents' positions. Now it's just par for the course across the aisle.

Oh, Eisenhower's GOP, please, please come back to us...

Just wanted to mention: had a wonderful day at Occupy Seattle today-glorious fall weather, good music, and cheap fruits and veggies at Pike Market to donate to the homeless who are the core of the permanent occupation. (It isn't easy work: they've got illumination from 4 or more cop cars every night, and the wind blows through something fierce. (Setting up a tent or even an umbrella is grounds for arrest.)

I hope you "occupy" NC soon; it looks like a major effort is underway, with special attention to Art Pope. I see there's an occupy chapel hill organization, but you wont get a proper feel for what's going on without visiting a city. There's a big effort in Raleigh.

Winston Smith, small party functionary who got killed without ever learning what was going on isn't a bad moniker. But Horatio isn't bad either: there are not things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in you philosophy.

We all miss Republicans, as John Rogers noted some years ago.

Rogers is well known around the Blogosphere for identifying the 27% Crazification Factor.

This highlights one of my gripes with Jon Stewart. His seemingly endless displays of rightwing hypocrisy have exactly zero effect on conservatives.

So, although I find them hilarious the Get Obama Party merely shrugs and moves on to their next revisionist talking point.
