Both Sides Are Too Extreme; We Need the Centrist Islamists and Republicans to Forge a Bipartisan Consensus

Funny that just as Jon Chait’s article on the crackpot nature of the GOP’s tax-cuts-uber-alles economic program sparked a lot of discussion, Osama bin Laden comes out with a Norquist-topping supply-side tax cut plan.

We really ought not orient our entire foreign policy around the rantings of this cave-dwelling clown.

But because our foreign policy has all the strategery of a special Opposite Day version of Simon Says, maybe President Bush will come out in favor of raising taxes.

“If al Qaeda bothers to mention taxes, it is because they want to achieve their objectives, which is to cut taxes.”
