I still want to talk about Republican economics tonight. But in my wandering about the blogosphere I came across two items that tell me pretty much everything I need to know about the GOP's version of social responsibility:
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant at 17. The Palins are making sure that little missy gets hitched to the feller who done got her in a family way. And, to help make sure that YOUR pregnant teenager can't run off and escape marrying the little thug who sweettalked his way into her va-jay-jay, she cut funding for teen pregnancy services in Alaska's budget by 22 percent.
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's littlest has Downs Syndrome. She chose to carry the child to term so she and her husband could care for it, rather than abort the child. She has promised to be a "friend and advocate" to special needs children if she is elected. And, to help make sure YOUR special needs kid gets his or her help from YOU alone, she cut funding for special ed in Alaska's schools by more than half.
Republicans: they'll tell you how much they'll do for you.
And then they'll do it TO you.
