Step Right Up & Pick 4, Any 4?!

Ah, what's a poor blogger/curator of the best damn Reserve Room in the chaotic Library known as the Internet/Web to do? The skewering of Big Love in today's reading was exquisite. Accompanying Calvin Trillin's political poem, there was a moveable feast in the NY Fishwrap Op-Ed page. See what Krugerand Man (Paul Krugman) did to Big Love's "secret plan" to create millions of jobs here. Also see what an equity trader (like Big Love) had to say about Big Love's aptitude for the Oval Office here. Finally, Eags (Timothy Egan) snarks Big Love plutocratic plan here. If this is a (fair & balanced) superfecta of snark, so be it.

Sure, sometimes they call it supply-side,
And sometimes they say job creation
Is risked if our entrepreneurs
Think profits get snatched by taxation.

It comes to the same simple credo
Around which the party has danced:
If rich people pay less in taxes,
Then everyone’s life is enhanced. Ω
