I’m just starting to get a real bunker mentality- Planned Parenthood is apparently the new Acorn. We’ll do a fundraiser for them sometime soon.
As to Sullivan’s “Of course cuts hurt people” bullshit, a couple thoughts:
1.) Who is this ED Kain and what did he do with the old one?
2.) No one writes with the fire of a convert.
3.) The fundamental thing you need to understand when talking to deficit hawks is that when they say something is painful or that cuts will hurt people, you need to recognize that what they really mean is that the cuts will be painful TO SOMEONE ELSE and hurt people THEY DON’T KNOW AND WILL NEVER MEET. That’s why it’s so easy to be a condescending asshole about the budget. That’s why it takes nothing to suggest raising the retirement age for Social Security. That’s why, after taking a month off from writing on the internet to recover from a cold, he can tell people who work back-breaking manual labor every day of their god damned lives for much less money than he or McMegan earn that they should “contribute” more to their health care costs.
I’ve added “the math demands it” to the rotating taglines.
BTW- For you insane people who keep asking, Tunch’s anal glands are fine. I’m in a hotel in an undisclosed location this weekend, and am going to spend the night streaming Chuck episodes so I can catch up. I should note that Sarah with black hair has me all sorts of hot and bothered.
