One Can Admire Norquist’s Sadism, But We’re Still Beating Around The Bush

To raise the debt ceiling, or not? National Review has a bunch of opinions from the wise guys. I can imagine Sprinklerman listening to Norquist:

My preference would be to keep the administration on a short leash and extend the debt limit by only a small amount and for a short period of time. This debt-limit increase is one of the few pieces of legislation that Obama must sign. Why not have such an extension every month and attach to each of them something small, reasonable, and related to debt or spending?

and then sending a bill from the House to the Petulant Desk, and BHO saying, “Yeah, we’ll just over-ride that with a signing statement.”
Listen, Norquist: if you want to be for tax reform, then be for tax reform. Taxation and spending are symptomatic of the notion that DC is a cosmic nipple from which milk and honey should flow. Use this debt ceiling vote to lay the foundations for load-shedding the federal over-reach that you know is really driving the problem. The Ruling Class continues its incessant campaign of beating around the bush.
