      If they were consistently anti-government, that would be bad. But what is worse is that they are quite enthusiastic about using government to hand money to their friends -- whether it's the 2002 Olympics, oil and gas subsidies, corn and soybean subsidies, defense contracts for equipment the Pentagon doesn't even want, or loaning money to banks at 0% and borrowing it back at 1.5%.
