Thomas Sowell:

It goes like this: Democrats start spending money wildly, handing out goodies to a wide range of people who they want to vote for them, while Republicans complain about deficits and the national debt. Then, when the public becomes alarmed about the debts that are piling up, the Democrats get the Republicans to vote for higher taxes to deal with the debt crisis, in the name of “fiscal responsibility.”

So, in Sowelland, the problem with the Republicans is that they are too gosh-darn responsible and bipartisan. I think that Sowell is losing it.
