Being a California lad, I've not had many white Christmases. But the first snow of the season fell today in Baltimore, and the town looks remarkably picturesque. Hope all is lovely where you are.
Check in later on -- I may post something freaky about Jesus. 'Tis the season.
For now, check out Mark McKinnon's Xmas wish: "All I want for Christmas is a new GOP."
All sanity seems to have left the ranks of those in charge of the GOP—or, more accurately, those who want to be in charge. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) demonstrated in a jaw-dropping performance Thursday on Morning Joe the depth of the problem and why we are bound to go over the fiscal cliff. He made it clear he won’t vote for a tax increase on anyone, no matter how much they make. So, by his logic, we will end up going over the cliff, and raise taxes on everybody, because he and too many others like him in the party are unwilling to raise taxes on anyone.
Yeah, but what if I want
taxes to return to the Clintonian rates? What if I want
military spending reduced? Maybe liberals should ask Santa to do what he can to keep the GOP just as crazy as it is.
And so, we have a Republican Party today willing to eliminate any prospect for a decent future for anyone, including itself, if it cannot be a future that is 100 percent in accordance with its core beliefs and principles. That’s not governing. That’s just lobbing hand grenades.
