As I mentioned last night, the new drama in DC is that Democrats need to solve a new hostage crisis, only now with a twist: Grover Norquist has taken Republican officeholders hostage and Democrats have to ransom them so they can make a deal. Like I said, Why? This is their problem. But along those lines Republicans are now proposing increasingly silly workarounds where they can raise taxes without violating the Grover pledge. Like second virginity, these ‘solutions’ are just more of those oxymorons that are not only impossible but based on a ‘problem’ that is intrinsically moronic and needless. Here’s the latest example.
Like I said, get a life. Get into therapy. This isn’t anyone else’s problem.
