Billionaires for Blanche

Posted By on Thu, Feb 19, 2009 at 6:21 AM

Tim Griffin (need I explain?) has been pounding Sen. Blanche Lincoln for talking like a populist despite a record of earnest devotion to the interests of the super-wealthy who helped us into this mess.

Griffin, a Karl Rove acolyte, has been making noise about running against Lincoln. The less said the better about that. But you can't argue with the guy when he has a valid point. As in quoting me on the subject of Lincoln and tax policy.
