Hitting the nail
Conservatives often complain about the liberal 'love' of taxes. Taxes, they say, are like a hammer--and to a liberal everything looks like a nail. But more and more, Republicans are looking like a bunch of carpenters who absolutely refuse to touch a hammer. They'll use a screwdriver, pair of pliers, the back of a wrench... anything but the accursed hammer! We are running unsustainable deficits, we will continue to run into 'unforseen' expenses, and the Republican leadership doesn't even think there's anything that can be cut! Somethings got to give, and I think it's the conservative fantasy that the Republicans are 'conservative' in any meaningful sense of the word--and that they even have a clue what good governance means.
