Normally our friend George Wittman covers national security. This time, though, in a note to me, he proposes something more in tune with domestic retiree security:
As the McCain campaign is looking around feverishly for a vote-getting device to attract the “middle class,” I have a suggestion: He should recommend that the annual required IRA distribution of people of advanced years NOT BE TAXED. Starting with this year and going on through his presidency, this would be extremely welcome to middle class retirees. The money would be valuable to the retirees, not be that big a revenue loss for the Treasury, and have a maximum political effect.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
