It wouldn’t be hard to write an artificial intelligence type program that produced this kind of idiocy:
This week, President Obama called him a social Darwinist. The conservative Club for Growth criticized him for wimping out on Medicare and military spending, and Ron Paul, the libertarian Republican, blasted him for not cutting tax rates more drastically.
I figure Paul D. Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who is head of the House Budget Committee, must be doing something right.
It’s not that “if both sides are complaining you must be doing something right” is incredibly fucking stupid the first time someone says it — though it is — it’s that these morons think it’s clever to repeat it a thousand times a day.
Can you imagine thinking such a thing? I simply cannot.
It’s hard for me to have much optimism about a future in which the “paper of record” prints this kind of pap.
