JOhn Donne would have said

Go and catch a falling star
get child by a mandrake root
and I'll find you a congressman
Republican and fair.

Looks like we have a live one -- an honest Republican.

Paul Krugman notes

At a recent town-hall meeting in suburban Simpsonville, a man stood up and told Rep. Robert Inglis (R-S.C.) to “keep your government hands off my Medicare.”

“I had to politely explain that, ‘Actually, sir, your health care is being provided by the government,’ ” Inglis recalled. “But he wasn’t having any of it.”

I ask you how many Republican congressmen would admit (let alone insist) that Medicare is a government program ?

[Having been critical of Brad DeLong, I still know when to applaud loudly.]
