Golly, Tim Graham is so dumb he makes me sympathize with Robert Scheer.
Robert Scheerâ€™s crude hackery is perhaps best remembered by his book â€œWith Enough Shovels: Reagan, Bush, and Nuclear War,â€ complete with a cartoon cover showing missiles where the schlongs belong.
No, he isn’t, because (1) that was the cover of “Thinking Tuna Fish, Talking Death” and (2) if anything, he’s best remembered for doing the Playboy interview with then-Gov. Jimmy Carter where Carter admitted he had “lust in his heart.” Also, Graham’s idea of a crazy Scheer quote is this:
“The mood of the Republican congressional leadership is so ideologically obtuse as to doom even this modest first step down the path of responsibility. They would rather kill people than raise taxes.”
It sounds crazy, but how many times since 1997 (when Scheer wrote that) has the GOP congress raised taxes? And, how many times have they declared war?
