One of the great victories of conservatism was framing every debate as the real, Tebow-fearing Murkins versus the dirty hippies who spit on soldiers. Is there anyway the left could try to do the same with banskters and bankster fanboys? A few months ago, I would have scoffed at this idea, but after the nosedive Romney’s favorables have taken, I’m beginning to wonder. Some of the stuff the bankster fanbois produce is awfully low-hanging fruit:
Last week Republican apparatchik James Pethokoukis wrote a column arguing that (in the words of the title) “Actually, Mitt Romney’s tax rate is too high”.
Yes, he really did.
Part of me wants to say, hey, if you wanna try that line, knock yerselves out. Let us know how it works out for ya.
There are many on the right who are just dumb enough to trot out this bullshit. I know there are those who find this bullshit bracing and courageous. But there aren’t many of those among the American voting public.
Probably, in a way, everything I’m saying here is obvious: the Obama administration is sure to shove the Ryan plan up Romney’s ass this fall.
