The Rude Pundit explains Republican economics.Posted: August 29, 2012 Filed under: Deep ponderings | Tags: Republicans, wisdom 4 Comments
One of my favorite political blogs is that of The Rude Pundit (“Proudly Lowering The Level Of Political Discourse”). His most recent entry features his pithy insights regarding the first night of the Republican National Convention. Halfway through the entry, he provides an illustration of Republican economic theory that is so dead-on accurate that I must post it verbatim. For your edification – The Rude Pundit:
Imagine you have a friend who a few years back heard that if you feed poodles money they will shit out gold bricks. So your friend starts feeding his hard-earned cash to all the pampered poodles he can find, and they gobble those bills down. But, surprise, surprise, despite what he heard, the dogs end up shitting shit. Still, he clings to this bizarre, completely disproven idea: poodles shit gold.
Now, after some time, he’s low on cash. You tell your friend to stop putting out plates of money for the goddamned poodles. No, your friend says. Instead, he must cut back on other things, like doctor visits and food and more, just so he’ll have the spare money to give the fucking dogs. “One day, these little bitches are gonna pay off,” he tells you, sounding completely crazy, “and I’ll be on easy street.” But until then, he’s just got hands that stink like dog shit.
And there’s your lesson in Republican economics.
I Knew there was some reason so many otherwise decent people are Republicans.

I thought this article was on the money (Pun intended) and regardless of it’s rather pithy language I think this article needs to be kept in front of The American People . . . perhaps even in front of everyone everywhere.
