Here’s a fun headline from The Huffington Post:
According to the Governor of Alaska, the government is spending money on people in order to control them.
Of course, in Alaska every citizen gets an annual $1,000 check from the government courtesy of the Alaska Permanent Fund, which is fed by the state’s oil tax revenues.
So, according to Sarah Palin, it’s bad when the government spends money to create jobs, but it’s good when the government just cuts you a big fat check. And sending your citizens big fat checks courtesy of the government is somehow consistent with the Republican economic philosophy.
Sarah Palin 2012! Because consistency is for losers!
