* Democrats insinuate that taxing the rich helps the economy, but they never explain how that would work. But I do in my new New York Post column using the Goose Face Punch Theory. I expect to win the Nobel Prize in Economics for this.
“See, that’s what our struggling country needs right now: the suffering of rich people. Seeing their sadness will get our country back to work, and we’ll have a new economy where all boats are lifted on a tide made of rich people’s tears.”
* Also, I have a short book review up at PJ Media. Guess which book?
Hey, if you need a last minute gift, Kindle books can be gifted anytime. And at a $1.99, you should give a copy to everyone you know! Now!
* Republicans caved or something over the $40 tax cut so it will only be for two months for now instead of a whole year. That Obama was making a big deal of this is further evidence he’s much more interested in political maneuverings to get himself reelected than anything that might actually help the economy. And if you needed further proof of that, please punch yourself in the face.
* If you’re interested in Ron Paul, The New Republic has excerpts from his newsletter. Some fun, totally not crazy reading about minorities, gays, and where did AIDS really come from!
* From Crowder – Kim Jong Il’s last videotape:
* Wisdom of the Day from Garrett Moore:
When is someone going to tell Willem Dafoe that his role in Spiderman is over and he can stop being a scary goblin now?
* Boise State won last night 56-24 over Arizona State. Not exactly an exciting match up, but that’s the BCS. It’s not about how well you play football, it’s about how profitable do they think the bowl will be.
The Senior class ends with a 50-3 record (quarterback Kellen Moore having played all 53). They never once trailed at halftime, and the three losses were two one point losses to TCU and an overtime loss to Nevada. Maybe they’ll get some more respect when they move to the Big East, but I won’t hold my breath.
* And I think I’m done for the year, dudes. I might have a column up over the next week to mention, but I won’t be back to regular blogging until it’s 2012 — the Presidential Election Year! Exciting!
So have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, ronin!
