    ... does the American public not understand? Turns out, they don't understand any part of it.

    The GOP, as the party of No, is trying to sell anvils to people who are drowning. That's a tough sell.

    Their arguments, stripped to the essentials, are 1) that it's wrong to help people who need help, and 2) that helping doesn't help.

    Because of the brute ugliness and blatant stupidity of those arguments, the GOP tries to dress 'em up in a lot of fancy and distracting detail (FDR made the Depression worse; spending isn't stimulative; etc). They're wrong on those details, of course, but that's not the point. The point is that, outside of a few bloggers and pundits, no one even listens to all that detail crap.

    GOP to America: DROP DEAD

    Not a winning political slogan.
