Nicholas Kristof puts the Right’s agenda into perspective in his Sunday New York Times column that you ought to read.

Kristof indentifies a nation that has almost everything the Republicans and Tea Partiers would want, extremely low taxes, limited government, traditional religious values, deference to military leaders, deep patriotism, etc.

Read his brilliant column to find out what country he is talking about.

    Easily one of the most ridiculous articles I’ve ever read. Obviously, Nicholas has traveled too much, and has severe jet lag .

    It’s an interesting point, though hardly brilliant, blaming the right for all of society’s ills and conveniently overlooking how to pay for everything the left wants to fund.

    As the GOP majority at the General Assembly has pointed out, there is very little difference in total dollar amounts in the budget the Governor proposed, and the final budget presented to the Governor last week.

    Exactly what is the problem?
