When The Silly Season Is All Year

So, the president started carping for the payroll tax cut extension — and Republicans, many of whom have pledged not to raise taxes, had to support the cut. They should have taken the time to explain that “the payroll tax cut” is not a proper tax cut, but they lost the rhetorical battle before they even began to fight the policy battle.
Not a "proper" tax cut. Interesting evolution of the Grover Norquist pseudo-primate from the stews of country clubs to a semi-upright position in the bunker near the green.Totally Darwinian. Never would have guessed it merely 7 months ago, when even "Default on Debts" was judged to be Doctrinal and Dogmatic.
