Magic Sparkle Pony Republicans

Tea Party Republican wants lower taxes -- but don't touch his farm subsidies, thank you very much!

Americans don't like the deficit, but don't want to raise taxes or cut spending to deal with it.

I guess all these people just expect the money to somehow appear, by magic. Undoubtedly after being shit out by a magic pink sparkle pony, who shits out, not rainbows, but free money so Americans don't have to, like, actually pay for the government services they receive.

Ronald Reagan once said "there is no such thing as a free lunch." One of the only true things he ever said -- somebody has to pay for that lunch. But the American people today, apparently, have a new slogan: "Gimme free lunches, and plenty of'em, and put it on the national credit card!" Alrighty, then!
