1) It appears that one of Jerry Brown's associates recently referred to Mr. Brown's challenger, Meg Whitman, as a whore. Sounds like a "Worst Person" nominee to me. ALTHOUGH, we will just have to wait and see here, now won't we?......2) People like Ralph Reed are always quick to point out that tax revenues doubled during the 1980s (i.e., the Reagan years) - a point that, yes, is in fact true. But, what Mr. Reed fails to tell us is that a) tax revenues have basically doubled during every decade (the 1930s obviously excepted), b) Reagan, in addition to cutting taxes, also engaged in a lot of deficit spending, and c) Mr. Reagan eventually RAISED taxes on folks. For him, Reed, to so categorically state (as Mr.s O'Reilly, Hannity, and other also have) a causal link between tax cuts and revenue enrichment is flat-out pseudoscience (not that it necessarily doesn't exist, mind you, but that it cannot be proven scientifically).
