Oh goody. The wingnuts and free-range loons are going to be out in force today (“Tax Day” for the 17% of Americans that haven’t already filed their income taxes) protesting all of the “reckless government spending” — something they were quite happily oblivious to for the past decade or more, apparently. Anyway, a couple of views on the protests from the left:
Howard Dean — as usual, the voice of reason. Go figure. I know that pseudo-cons will likely never be capable of getting their heads around that idea, but contrary to the ridiculous caricatures of him conjured up by the right-wing during the 2004 election, the guy is a very sensible and moderate fiscal conservative — always was, and still is.
