Let's Get Snarky!

More high-quality snarkiness from Matthew Yglesias:

Matthew Yglesias: Sully's mad: Hell hath no fury like a small government conservative scorned, and Andrew Sullivan's series of brief rants on the horrors of Bushonomics is priceless. Of course anyone who noted during the campaign that his original tax cut numbers didn't add up could have predicted that. It's really too bad that there wasn't anyone in America who caught that. I mean, if maybe someone writing for the Times op-ed page had said something, we wouldn't be in this mess. A columnist of some sort. Maybe a trained economist with a flair for popular writing. Named P ... Paul ... Paul something ... there must've been someone like that. Oh well, better late than never.

Finally. Until now Andrew has hero worshipped President Bush and acted as though the great man could do wrong. Now that lily livered liberal Alan Greenspan is saying the same thing.

I always thought that the conservative philosophy was that the federal budget should balance, if not every year then at least at the peak of every business cyle.

How many real economists, say who publish in peer reviewed technical journals, are "supply siders?
