    That stimulus bill was just the thing to jump-start us in the early 1990s.

    I've always thought it strange that people forgot this recent, well-documented example of a successful stimulus.

      but before Clinton it was part of Bush's "Thousand Points of Light."

      But the phrase was pounded by Rush et al. for years so, in the make-believe world of wingnut unsubtle racism (after, who plays midnight basketball?) it is an unassailable example of welfare-queenism run amok.

      That it worked is not even a footnote in that world.
