Video: The most "unpatriotic" thing you'll see this year

Well, maybe not the very most: No doubt we’ll be told the tea parties rate awfully high on the treason scale, too. I’m tempted to call this a ready-made campaign ad for the GOP once the inevitable — and they are inevitable — Obama tax hikes are finally announced, but reminding the poorer 50 percent of American households that they’re freeloading on taxes does not a brilliant populist strategy make. No wonder libertarians can’t win elections.

Trim out the stuff about relative burdens, though, and replace it with estimates of the average household’s bill for Great Society II and you’ve got a sweet spot set to go for the midterms.
