From your keyboard to God's eyes

TMQ, as is its wont, slides into topics other than football and Gregg Easterbrook makes the following observation:


Seniors as a group are the best-off segment of American society. Multimillion-dollar bonuses to bungling bankers are more outrageous than a $250 check, but the total expense of the latter is greater, while in both cases, government is taxing the less-well-off, or borrowing from the young, to hand a giveaway to a politically connected lobbying block. Our new president must learn to pronounce the word "no," or liberalism will be discredited for a generation.

Quote of the day

And it's from the fertile mind of Moxie regarding the charisma that Pawlenty exudes:


He has all the impact of dust landing on a down comforter.

Pawlenty strikes me as a decent guy and a reasonably conservative fellow. And I find the possibility of him beating Obama to be somewhat where in the neighborhood of zero. Okay, maybe next door to zero. Okay, in the same house AND sleeping in the same bed.
