Republican strategy: I was scanning Howard Dean's "Blog For America," since there wasn't time for a root canal, and came across this paragraph:
What's playing out in America right now is the bait-and-switch strategy known on the right as "starve the beast." The ultimate goal is to slash government programs that help the poor and the middle class, and use the savings to cut taxes for the rich. But the public would never vote for that.
Boy, some yahoo's off the deep end, right? The yahoo is Paul Krugman who wrote that paragraph in today's NYT. Glad to see the tenor of debate remains at such a distinguished elevation. And Howard Dean publishes it on his own website. Noble.
