...but the Republicans have to say they think the economic stimulus plan is a bad idea. If they agree with it, and it works, then...well, they're screwed anyway, the country will swing further Democratic in the 2012 election. People will just walk into the voting booth and pull the "Democrat" lever without messing with the details. So their only hope is if the plan fails, to generate momentum for their own hopes for election. If it fails, they can point a finger and say "We told you so! Vote for us again!"
And Rush Limbaugh is now leading the party? We had an alcoholic in the White House for eight years, then we had Sarah Palin dictating conservative ideology; now we have a drug addict telling people what to think? Please. Once Bob Dole lost in 1996, the Republican party has consistently churned out some major duds. Stop the insanity, it's got to stop.
And just a little FYI: Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius was tapped to be health and human services secretary which is proof that all amazing people come from Kansas thank you very much. If you want to find me I'll be sitting her in my Smug Chair feeling geographically superior.
