In Which The GOP Makes A Fool Of Itself

That dull roar that you hear is bloviating from across the political spectrum on tomorrow's Republican anti-taxation tea parties.

My own view of these events is simple: It gets a few people, many of them delusional, off the streets and someplace safe where they can beat effigies President Obama with Whiffle Ball bats before returning to their bunkers to count their silverware.

As it is, the Party of Beavis and Butthead is having a most unexcellent adventure in the post-Dubya world.

Most recently, the stock market is in the midst of a sustained rally, stimulus money is trickling into communities where jobs are being created, a Republican appointee has written gay marriage legislation in Iowa that has been validated by Republican judges, Norm Coleman is toast, and perhaps worst of all, the American ship captain who was being held by Somali pirates didn't take an Kalashnikov round in his wheelhouse, thereby proving that Obama was a pantywaste.

Oh, and the president's numbers remain sky high, with some 71 percent of voters saying they have a great deal or fair amount of confidence in his economic policies in one recent poll. Republican congressional leaders limped in at 38 percent.

They are talking about the wrong beverage at tomorrow's events. They are going to be serving whine.
