Let’s just do a round-up of stupid shit from Galt’s Gulch rejects.
2.) Also via TBOGG, we learn that the Galtian hunters who eat what they kill feel that they are under-appreciated in their cushy finance jobs. The poor bastards.
3.) Eric Cantor has some rock solid and hip new ideas on how to spark the economy, and Fred Hiatt’s fishwrap gave him a column to write about those fancy ideas:
That is why this fall the Republican Party will pursue a legislative agenda that boosts economic growth through reducing the regulatory and tax burden. We will make sure that Washington policies are less restrictive to businesses small and large. Our goals include repealing the “3 percent withholding rule,” which serves as an effective tax increase on those who do business with the government, and overturning the EPA’s proposed regulations that inhibit jobs in areas as varied as cement and farm dust. We plan to prevent the NLRB from inhibiting where a business chooses to create jobs. We well know that the Republican majority was not elected to raise taxes or take more money out of the pockets of hardworking families and business people. We were elected to change the way Washington does business and spends money.
Tax cuts and de-regulation. Those are fresh and innovative ideas.
4.) Over at Reason, Matt Welch misses the central point of a NY Times piece, then lies about the author, claiming he finds 1% of teachers in rubber rooms “understandable.” Here is what the author wrote: “There were 744 teachers in rubber rooms at the time. For some, that is understandable in a system of 77,000 teachers…” Here’s what Matt had to say: “NYT Education Writer: Putting 1% of Public School Teachers in Rubber Rooms Is “Understandable.” But don’t worry, Welch is swinging some heavy argumentation skills, and follows up with: “Emphasis mine, because of wow.” We’re making that a new tag, because it really works.
I need a new car, because of wow!
The Fonz wears a cool jacket, because of wow!
Give money to the Reason Foundation, because of wow!
Matt Welch should have to spend a year as a public school teacher in the worst neighborhood in the Bronx and then write about how they are overpaid BECAUSE OF WOW!
