... And That Was Quick

Man, as soon as I put up a post saying how tolerable Mickey had become (6 in a row!), he throws up a missive about how awful it is that the least of us might stand to get benefits from the stimulus package.

The less fortunate get all the breaks!

Better to use the money (and more) to create public jobs*** for these would-be recipients if private sector jobs have dried up, even if that upsets municipal employee unions (which don't want welfare recipients doing jobs their members might do)?

Oh, it's all there: grammatical problems (why, precisely, is that sentence a question?), ridiculous assumptions (municipal employee unions -- and not, say, Senate Republicans -- are the true enemies of progress!), and unrealistic alternative outcomes (the return of the WPA is apparently on the table -- who knew?!?) employed in an attempt to shame Democrats into supporting Republican positions and politicians.

Of course, it's all to settle ancient scores for the good of the nation!

It's good to have you back, Mickey.
