The Excreable Mr. Holtz-Eakin

I’m willing to bet our friend Quin Hillyer will have something piquant to say about the latest reported peregrination of former McCain campaign economic adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin:

Though economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin spent the 2008 presidential campaign advising Sen. John McCain to defend the Bush-era tax cuts, he now thinks they should be allowed to expire on Dec. 31, 2010 due to “the prospect of an Argentina-style fiscal meltdown.” Said Holtz-Eakin: “If you ask: ‘Who pays the taxes?’, it’s the first step toward not having the answer be: ‘Our kids.'”

I’m told that in Louisiana, “piquant” is a synonym for “shockingly profane.” Perhaps Quin can clear up this matter of regional dialect.
