Say it with me now: Bush is only conservative when it comes to his use of honest communication. Thus: Conservatives Against Bush
But, perhaps it should be Conservatives Against Republicans. Recently I read that Republican state governments are outspending Democrat-controlled ones*. This was pointed out in "Come On, Big Spender" in a Time Magazine article which appears to not be available online. Andrew Sullivan of "The Daily Dish" is the author.
Combine that with this graphic of the states which are sucking off the most federal dollars. (via Prof. Pollkatz) Where have I seen those states before? Oh yeah - they're the Bush's celebrated red states. For whatever reason, they're not only spending their own money, but spending federal money like mad. The answer is clear - Republicans in power have become a party of pork.
[* Clarification: The Republican-controlled states increased their spending at a greater rate than the Democratic-controlled ones]Posted by James at September 23, 2003 10:08 AM
