Windfall Profits Tax, Revisited

Jim Geraghty:

Liberals are lamenting Obama's withdrawn proposal of a windfall profits tax on oil companies, asking whether it is his first broken promise of his presidency. The answer, as Jen Rubin notes, is of course not; he broke lots and lots of promises before even being elected.

But all is not lost, my liberal friends. Allow me to propose the institution of a windfall profits tax on presidential campaigns.

Why didn't I think of that?

Oh, right, I did!

The difference, of course, is that I wanted to provide voters with a tax rebate, whereas Geraghty apparently wants to subsidize puppies.

Puppies sure are nice and cuddly.
