Sky is Blue

February 25, 2009

I’m working on a meatier post about supply-side economics, since the GOP has tossed it up as a better alternative to what Obama is doing, but I haven’t had time to finish it.

In the meantime, I’ll just note how odd it is that a guy as smart as Matt Yglesias is surprised to discover that a) America is not a geographically small, culturally homogeneous European country, and b) oil is valuable.  Now, I absolutely agree that the American government needs to function better than it has, especially in recent years, but I don’t get why he expects large policy changes to happen as smoothly in America as in Finland.

Oh, and in this age of extreme political polarization, it’s nice to find something that liberals and conservatives can all agree on: Bobby Jindal’s speech was a charlie foxtrot.
