Fiscal Cliffery: A Suggestion

Boehner whines about the terrible plight of rich people. Republicans poop their pants out of spite. Obama will make his case to the greed monsters. And so on.

You know, we could bypass all of this nonsense (and alarmism about running deficits is indeed nonsense) if we maybe took a serious look at cutting the bloated defense budget by about, oh, say, 50% or so.

No? More bombs, less feeding people, more absurd political gridlock?

Sounds great. Carry on.
