A conservative Raleigh radio talk show host was bantering on the air Wednesday afternoon with the news anchor who had just ended his report with a story about the federal stimulus package, which the host promptly ridiculed as a waste of money.
A Raleigh right-wing think tanker recently described the stimulus package as an abject failure. The anti-government talking heads on the cable shows like to say the stimulus plan is part of what is bankrupting America.
All the zealots must have winced Wednesday when their paper of record, the Wall Street Journal, reported that the stimulus package is helping the county climb out of the recession.
Whoops. Time to adjust those talking points.
