Where's Phil Gramm?

Thursday, February 05, 2009

Not much has been heard from Phil Gramm since he called us a "nation of whiners" about seven months ago. That is, before the National Bureau of Economic Research determined that our collective "mental recession" had some physical properties as well.

The "see no evil" days of prominent Republicans like Gramm seem to be over now that the Dems are in power. They can go back to talking about small government, reducing federal spending, and fighting pork. If only they actually believed it!

I've even heard that Fox is starting to do some actual reporting again. Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich have drastically changed their views regarding the scope of the crisis. As far as admitting that the American economy is somehow less than absolute perfection, a green light was apparently issued sometime around January 20th. If they play their cards right, the GOP could easily take the White House again in 2012, at which time they can feel comfortable about complete abandonment of their stated principles once again, switching their attention to 24/7 damage control.

Ain't the two party system grand?
