Our friend Mark Thoma alerted me to the latest from Tom DeLay:
Democrats have no ideas and no class, DeLay said last night.
My initial reaction is in the spirit of Rubin’s op-ed – let’s reverse all that pork barrel spending passed for the friends of Tom. Now there is an idea with some class. Of course, the “no ideas” nonsense is the usual blather we hear from Mary Matalin and we know George W. Bush “gets things done”. Of course, Bush does not seem to care whether these things are good public policies or outright disasters. As Fred Barnes once said – Bush is a “big government conservative”.
