See, this is the problem with Republicans. They don’t read, or conveniently mis-remember, their own history and propaganda. Rachel is merely quoting St. Ronald Reagan’s own vice president, when as a presidential candidate in the primaries against St. Reagan, he called St. Reagan’s economic mumbo jumbo exactly what it was and remains: “voodoo economics.” His name?….are you ready… George Herbert Walker Bush. When St. Reagan later tapped him to be his running mate, GHWB suddenly saw the light and supply side, trickle-down economic theory became as sacred as the Holy Grail. That obviously misguided theory has had us all in an economic and political trickbag since 1981.
So Maddow should be proud of the job she is doing. She is making these people aware that we are aware of their constant lies, obfuscations, misdirections, coded language, race and gender-based approach to social and economic policy and practice. Maddow has shown us that distortions of the truth with Republicans is, indeed, second nature. They don’t even have to think about it any more. They just do it.
