Stab your back:

— Fox News amping up the race-baiting.

— Voters have managed to forget that TARP was a Bush administration initiative. I might add that it was actually rare Bush administration success!

— Bad economics is much more harmful than mere voodoo.


— Central bank independence gone awry.

— David Frum and the lump of labor fallacy.

— Useless confirmation hearings for the Fed Board.

One time when profanity is appropriate in a prestige publication is when it’s inside quotation marks. Hence your song of the day, the Kills “Fuck the People”.
