Car Dealers and Other Republicans Worthy of Scorn

A story in the Dallas Morning News informs us that area new car dealers who are also Republicans are "deeply disappointed" that Republicans in Congress temporarily defeated the GM and Chrysler bailout.

Yes, of course. That is why one becomes a Republican: in order to promote the expansion of the federal government into the private sector.

I may start drinking heavily this Christmas.

But, wait. On a brighter note, many Democrats now seem to believe in trickle down economics. They're still not much on tax cuts to spur economic growth, but they are now on the record in favor of giving lots of money to big corporations on the theory that it will trickle down and help save jobs.

Well, that's really not quite the same as supply side economics. Drinking is sounding increasingly like a good idea. After the unbelievable expansion of government under the Bush administration, when Republicans complain about the "socialist" policies of Barack Obama, they will justly be laughed out of town.

Considering you are a man of class, I would suggest a nice brandy or chianti, maybe even a martini, but the kind of drinking that would require Republicans to look like conservatives would put you into bankruptcy with that quality of liquor. Perhaps Boonesfarm would be a better choice.
