Romney Down Our Throats

Post Republican debate #94 stuff

Intrade listed Romney’s chances of winning the nomination as almost unchanged at 65.8 percent by 10:30 p.m. after last night's  debate (where everyone piled on his flip-floppy past). Perry’s chances increased 1 percent to 15.5 percent, according to Intrade, while the site suggested Cain’s chances dropped from 9.2 percent to 7.5 percent.

While Romney is the choice of absolutely nobody in my personal orbit, after McCain the ability of the GOP apparatchiks to have their way with us cannot be dismissed.

Corn on the Cob Magic

Sigh Hoes in the Outfield
Aw Shucks

For those of us who love corn on the cob, this is an absolute must see!   No mess to preparing it, no silks to try to brush out of the corn. - Don M

I cook cotc in  the microwave all the time,  but I  never knew this trick.  Sadly,  by corn eating time  next year I'll have forgotten this, so I'll just program it post to pop back up on July 4, 2012.  It's like magic.

While I've never seen them, during dinner last night my daughter was near tears while describing my granddaughter (2) wearing them.  She actually said "Note to everyone, this is a  positively must have item for your kid because you'll laugh your head of watching them, limbs all askew and  akimbo,  as they bounce around off the furniture in the dark.$9.99

Laffer on Cain .... .

When Art Laffer speaks ...
Cain's Stimulating '9-9-9' Tax Reform
A new sales tax could be raised in the future—but so can any other tax. And the low marginal rates would jump-start the economy.

Gimme chovies

Still, a number of my fellow economists don't like the retail sales component of the 9-9-9 plan. They argue that, once in place, the retail rate could be raised to the moon. They are correct, but what they miss is that any tax could be instituted in the future at a higher rate. If I could figure a way to stop future Congresses from ever raising taxes I'd do it every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Until then, let's not make the perfect the enemy of the good. - Art Laffer

First, and  hearkening back on the earlier discussion about "who are establishment republicans?," George Will, ahem,  recently opined “We’re having a kind of Andy Warhol primary where everybody is leader for 15 minutes and Cain’s turn."  I suspect George Will's first choice is Mitt Romney, but let's not sling mud.

 It just might be that Herman Cain is ascendant because he has a message with substance, oui?  His 999 plan is that in spades (and the obverse of Obama's  666 plan.)   Laffer satisfactorily addressed my concern about the irresoluteness of a national sales tax.  I am now firmly in Cain's camp, and don't hold the 'chovies.
