Cainsian Economics - "The Devil is in the details"

Lawrence O'Donnell and Bruce Bartlett - with an assist
from Michele Bachmann - dissect the GOP "frontrunner du
jour" and pizza Godfather's devilish 9-9-9 Plan to raise
taxes on the working poor and cut taxes for the rich:

  1. Cain's popularity is beyond surreal. Lewis Carroll has nothing on this election cycle: Republicans won't vote for a Democratic President's plan to lower taxes and they have their own plan to RAISE taxes.

    That is odd enough. Even if Robert Gibbs couldn't just come out and say it on CNN, the Janeane Garofalos and Bill Mahers of the world thought it was pretty obvious the only reason Republican Congressmen could get away with this is because of deep-seated racism in the GOP base. Obama could do no right in Fox News Viewer's minds even if he coopted 90% of Ronald Reagan's playbook.

    I think Garofalo and Maher owe Grethchen Stern an apology for assuming the worst. The current GOP frontrunner is an African American who spells out exactly how he is going to raise taxes. If Pat Buchanan weren't still alive, he would be rolling over in his grave.
