John Boehner on the Democrats' wish to cut taxes on the middle class without giving higher-income people a similar break…
"If ifs and buts were like candy and nuts then every day would be Christmas."
John Boehner is a moron. That's Halloween.

Public Policy Polling — unofficial motto: "Pay Attention to Us!" — finds that 44% of Americans believe Santa is a Democrat, 28% say he is a Republican, while the remainder are annoyed that they can no longer distinguish between crank calls and PPP surveys.
Both sides have their arguments. Santa's prodigious gift-giving reputation rivals any Democrat's commitment to entitlement spending. On the other hand, an old white man who runs an off-shore workshop in a business-friendly territory — the North Pole is definitely a "right to work" state — and exploits the labor of "elves" has plenty of reasons to vote Republican.
The poll also found that “If Grandma got run over by a reindeer," 61% of respondents would not press charges and 24% would. Only 19% of Republicans would press charges, compared to 33% of Democrats, which is what happens when you have a political party overrun with trial lawyers.

According to the latest popular vote tallies, Barack Obama's gifts and the New Black Panther Party's GOTV efforts earned the president 65,331,508 votes compared to 60,698,920 votes for Mitt Romney. Those on the losing side of this result can find solace in the Five Best Counties for Conservative Republicans, where they may be cocooned miles away from the nearest NPR-listening, Prius-driving, Obama-voting liberal.
For the winners, however, there's the realization that 60 million votes is still a ton of people. Are there any places in America where a Democrat can be away from the Romney-voting hordes and experience the same level of blissful epistemic closure as their conservative counterparts? Yes. Yes there are.

This year Jordan Carlos and I covered every rocky pothole of the road to the White House. It certainly was an educational experience! I'm not sure what Jordan learned (I think he tries to block a lot of it out), but this is what I learned.
THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY
I learned that sometimes everyone loses. It's simple math.

Did you ever wonder why parents are always warning their children not to talk to strange people and to stay out of unfamiliar vans? Yes, it's partially so that they don't get kidnapped. But there's actually a much bigger danger. Strange people who hang out in vans tend to be liberal, and they would like nothing more than to infect you with their Big Government ideas.
But you all wouldn't listen, and now just look at what's happened to America…
