The irony of indignancy
Sure, we’ll break our pledge. I mean, you can’t actually expect us to be purists when the FISCAL CLIFF is looming. Some of us Care About the Country! Don’t you, Hobbits?
Besides, what are we going to do, cut our own spending, or take on big ticket entitlements? When all we have to do instead is side with the Democrats and come out for the economic patriotism of demanding “the rich” pay “their fair share”? Right. Like we have the balls for that. Face it: You fucked up, you trusted us!
And now all your “revenue” are belong to us!
