Quote for the Day

Given the gravity of the debt crisis, [A Pledge to America] is the most fiscally irresponsible document ever offered by the GOP. It is to the far right of Reagan, who raised taxes and eventually cut defense, and helped reform social security to ensure its longterm viability. It is an act of vandalism against the fiscal balance of the US, and in this global economic climate, a recipe for a double-dip recession and default. It is the opposite of responsible conservatism. Andrew Sullivan, recognizing that the GOP is "bullshitting you on fiscal responsibility."

The Republican Party, as it stands now, is unrecognizable, even to itself.
