From Gail Collins’ “Who Doesn’t Love A List?” in the NYT:
“The primaries have been great for the economy. Dimwitted billionaires are dumping money they don’t need into the campaigns of people who can’t win, providing much-needed jobs for ad-writers, poll-takers and yard-sign manufacturers.
“Do you remember, at the depth of the recession, when Keynesians kept saying that we could jump-start the recovery by just paying a whole bunch of people to dig holes and fill them back in? This is exactly the same thing! Keep going, Republicans!”
Except that digging holes and filling them in is harmless and doesn’t cause trouble as the GOP candidates are doing. Check out Santorum’s “Welcome to Obamaville” on YouTube. Whoever made this sick piece of garbage should be sentenced to digging holes and filling them in for all eternity. It predicts nothing less than the apocalypse if Obama is reelected and flashes alternating shots of him and Ahmadinejad on the screen, cause, you know, they’re so alike, a couple of Muslim guys who hate America.
