Wishful Thinking

Not quite as crazy as some, nonetheless entirely delusional Canadian Republican & former Bush speechwriter David Frum types:
Fortunately, the Republican 2016 field thus far remains mercifully free of the charlatans and crackpots who came to the fore in 2012. The early field is intelligent and hard-working. Paul Ryan has immense policy knowledge, Ted Cruz is a brilliant litigator and debater, Marco Rubio has made himself central to the most important legislative initiative of the year. Even Rand Paul has carefully repositioned himself as a sober-minded U.S. Senator, distancing himself from paranoia and bigotry.
Clap louder & harder, Dave, that always helps.

(We've no idea why, but it seems to be web log tradition to note that an item has been "cross-published" elsewhere.)

You have to crosslink it, or else Skynet will become self-aware.

Paul Ryan has WHAT?

Maybe. If he actually has policy knowledge, immense or otherwise, we're still waiting for him to demonstrate it. Cutting trillions in taxes on the rich and declaring it revenue neutral because, well, we'll do something about it later, can't really say what, but something, isn't really policy knowledge as much as it is outright dishonesty...

Just Another Blog (From L.A.)™ is the virus.

And totally juvenile joke:

Ted Cruz is a brilliant litigator and debater...

Does that make him a master debater?
