Special Bonus Friday Episode 89 turned out to be everything I thought it would be when I asked Kurt Schlichter to come on the show with me — funny, smart, and wickedly cutting. We talked about John Boehner’s budget deal, the slide of America into today’s modern welfare state, and the origin of the Community [...]

I used to think the progressive left was little more than a bunch of lemmings, determines to leap en masse off the cliffs of fiscal insanity. The more I think about it, though, the more I realize that comparison just doesn’t work. Here is a recent example (via memeorandum) If President Obama’s deficit-reduction speech today [...]

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I’ve defended John Boehner’s budget deal. It looks, today, like Boehner played a lot of silly games to get cuts that, while still cuts, won’t perform as advertised. As such, I’m going to have to eat a little bit of crow. I’m not the only [...]

I’m not fan of tax increases, but I think I can get behind Glenn Reynolds’ plan. A 50% surtax on anything earned within five years after leaving the federal government, above whatever the federal salary was. Leave a $150K job at the White House, take a $1M job with Goldman, Sachs, pay a $425K surtax. [...]

I am now going to write something I never thought I’d write: I’m proud of John Boehner for beating Barack Obama and the Democrats. I know. Wait a moment to let the shock settle in and read this. Barely more than an hour before a midnight deadline, officials announced a deal to avert a government [...]

Ezra Klein, wunderkind of the Washington Post, believes he has the goods on Republicans. His “gotcha” comes in the form of a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll on the matter of which party should compromise in order to avoid a government shutdown and all its attendant apocalyptic events. I’ll not recreate Klein’s argument, but I’ll [...]
