George Will has a must-read this morning on how the Republican Party's fiscal excesses drove them to minority status in 2006. And how those same excesses, still uncorrected, will keep the Republicans there past 2008.
Noted: Don Young (R-Alaska) is a "political vulgarian" plagued by "wretched excesses".
We have to wonder if John McCain, fiscal sheriff, will use his new power as the Republican nominee to talk about all this?
Convincingly. Publicly. Unflinchingly.
So pass the popcorn.
And let's watch as the Washington, DC appropriators wet their pants.
