The Party of Government Hucksters

This is not exactly news (it cost the Pubbies a lot last cycle), but it deserves re-statement.

Both [Parties] tell the American people that everything can be had for nothing: free healthcare, prescription drugs, retirement benefits, hundreds of bases around the world, federal highways, subsidized education, civil servants with six-figure salaries, supermax prisons, support for farmers, NASA — all with no money down! It’s not just the Democrats; the Republicans too make Countrywide Financial seem like an honest enterprise.

I enjoyed that used-car-salesman "NO MONEY DOWN!!!" line.

It fits all of the jackasses well.
