Shorter Bobo Brooks

Bobo Brooks, the "conventional wisdom" editorial page guy at the New York Times, in an editorial today said that we as a nation simply cannot afford to take care of the young, the vulnerable, the disabled, or the poorest of the poor anymore. Too bad for them. They don't have bread? Well...

Messenger: "Sire! The peasants are starving because they have no bread!"
Bobo: "Let them eat cake."

Just call it another attack of the Marie Antoinette Republicans, and leave it at that...

-- Badtux the "Anybody remember what happened to Marie?" Penguin

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
