Oui, c'est bon!

But what about this:

"For Republicans eager to corral federal spending - and that's most of them..."

Some would argue that "most" Republicans deserted the 'wacko birds' who actually attempted to corral federal spending. But I'll not do that - I'd just like to ask if it is acceptable to have, as a goal, a congress wherein ALL Republicans are eager to corral federal spending? Or is that too "extreme?"

Barnes (and Strassel and Kudlow) would say that all Republicans wish to cut spending but differ on tactics. Do you risk an unpopular ploy close to important midterms?

I find that argument compelling, but would like to see all three of them discover what Barnes begins to limn. All accept rather generic poll data on "likeability of GOP Congress" as proof of defeat.

Who says the wacko bird tactics are unpopular, generic polling data? I don't for a second believe that McCain or Graham would ever cut any pentagon spending. Ever. And the Dems know they'll sell their souls for DoD, so they never get to cut any other spending in any other department. Ever.

I, for one, am fed up with business-as-usual in Washington D.C. I'm beyond ready to attempt other tactics, even ones that some may malign as "unpopular."
