On the second of this week’s podcasts, the COMMENTARY crew do not mourn the demise of Bill O’Reilly but rather seek to explain its causes. They also wonder at the news that Hillary Clinton’s “people” are searching for the traitors who gave dirt to the authors of the hit new book Shattered—because why does Hillary have “people” any longer? And Georgia is on our mind. Give a listen.

    Hillary is now nothing more than a cardboard cutout that we pose in front of, and laugh!

    Not sure who the person on the left is. Is it the next senator from Michigan?

    Stranger things have happened, brother! I generally do not want to see Rockers go anywhere near politics, even Kid Rock, but knowing he would be in Al Franken’s face every day? Yeah, I’d pay money to see that.

    John is correct about the theme of the Tea Party being spending.

    He misses that its genesis was not in Obamacare or even the Stimulus.

    It goes all the way back to Medicare Part D, TARP, and all the spending in the W. admin.

    OregonMuse over at Ace of Spades HQ did a post on what woke is. Yes, it’s as silly as you’d think and talked about around the 47 minute mark.

    Medicare Part D

    Instant $9 trillion unfunded liability. Karl Rove dreamed it up to get Bush reelected, otherwise Iraq would implode under Kerry.

    A hedgefund guy I follow confronted him publicly about it. Reportedly it was pretty embarrassing. War is expensive.

    John said that the trigger was Obamacare, which was true. But you are correct that the proto-tea party already existed and was opposed to Bush’s lack of fiscal restraint. We had hoped that Republican majorities in both houses of Congress and a Republican in the White House would give us some big fiscal policy victory (e.g. balanced budget or entitlement reform). We got nothing. We did not even get protection against Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The tea party was organized and angry and even vocal when TARP came around. But the name and the eruption as a popular movement was triggered by Obamacare.
