There is always a convincing argument that there always need to be some good people need to be working for bad politicians:
Yelü Chucai, after all, joined Genghis Khan--and convinced him that he should conquer China and rule it, rather than simply raiding it and burning it until all north China was one gigantic horse pasture.
But I have an email about Douglas Holtz-Eakin stating:
Someone needs to tell Holtz-Eakin he can't say this sort of crap and then expect to rejoin polite society once the election is over:
Holtz-Eakin: The American people continue to learn more about Barack Obama. Now we know that the slogans "change you can believe in" and "change we need" are code words for Barack Obama's ultimate goal: "redistributive change." In a previously uncovered interview from September 6, 2001, Barack Obama expressed his regret that the Supreme Court hadn't been more "radical" and described as a "tragedy" the Court's refusal to take up "the issues of redistribution of wealth." No wonder he wants to appoint judges that legislate from the bench – as insurance in case a unified Democratic government under his control fails to meet his basic goal: taking money away from people who work for it and giving it to people who Barack Obama believes deserve it. Europeans call it socialism, Americans call it welfare, and Barack Obama calls it change.
