Obama Wants to Cut Taxes for Hookers

Jonah Goldberg nails my sentiments regarding the democratic national convention and the theme emerging for Obama/Biden ’08.

Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, borrowing a line from Obama, complained that John McCain wants to give “$4 billion in tax breaks for Big Oil?”

No. McCain wants to lower the corporate tax rate to make us more competitive with our rivals. Yes, oil companies are included — but by this logic (as my colleague Ramesh Ponnuru notes), Obama’s middle-class tax cut will be a tax break for hookers and serial killers.

My previous post hits on this next part:

 …a Democratic Party that isn’t merely eager to return to the White House, but desperate to launch a new New Deal.

A new New Deal seems to be what a lot democratic rhetoric is pointing towards.  More government, less personal responsibility and accountability.
