Steve Benen does a pretty good job of explaining why I am not eager to discuss our budget and our deficits. Talking to Republicans about finances is like being in a Lewis Carroll novel. It’s so pointless that it just makes you want to give up, which is probably part of the point. At its most basic, it’s the same as debating the merits of socialized medicine with someone who hates the idea but doesn’t want you to lay a hand on their Medicare. How is it worth it to continue the conversation after you point out the irony once to no effect? It’s the same with jackoffs like Jim DeMint and Mike Pence. That they can decry the deficit spending in Obama’s budget proposal in the morning and then turn around in the afternoon and propose huge permanent tax cuts that are not paid for, well…it’s just too stupid to really respond. So, I won’t.
