"The Great Paradox -- that is what future generations will likely call this era, and rightly so. Our children’s children will look back and see that just a few years after the deregulatory agenda of anti-government ideologues resulted in a horrific recession, American politics somehow became even more dominated by anti-government zealotry than ever before. Logic-wise, the situation seems to make about as much sense as the alcoholic drinking more to cure his addiction." [editor's note: If the premise were true, the analogy would hold quite well; "deregulation" is a rhetorical misnomer for what actually occurred - SAT]] (02/18/11)
