    the FP has tons of ammo, too.
    But that damn memory hole is a serious problem. Without it, we wouldn't have forgotten the lesson of Vietnam (Don't get into a land war in Asia), or burned the surplus, or believed any neocon anywhere ever.
    In short, if the American people paid attention, there would be nothing resembling the right wing anymore. At least not viably. Reality smashes their crap every single time, while vindicating the DFH view just as consistently.
    FWIW, I kept it to discussions with some key players just in the months immediately surrounding the first tax cut, and then pared that down to a few outlets. It's the tip of a pretty big iceberg. Otherwise the wealth of quotes that could be used against the mealy mouthed apologists on both sides becomes too unwieldy.
    If this whole issue were even a little bit about governance, it would not be a debate.
    But we know better than that.

    The Republican Party will never die until there is a new political home for racists.
