Of Mice And Men

David Frum and Ross Douthat wring their hands over GOP fecklessness. Ed Morrissey keeps up the moronic "Porkulus" meme. I'm sure Rush would approve:

The House did its job, as did most of the Republicans in the Senate, even while saying that they would support a real stimulus package.  Instead, Specter, Collins, and Snowe essentially stabbed their colleagues in the back while Specter whined about the lack of debate on the bill, after he voted for cloture and an end to debate.

Morrissey thinks a package with more tax cuts (seriously?) and more short-term spending (although the proportion of short-term spending increased in the final bill) would have won bipartisan acclamation. Again: one wonders what universe he's living in.
