Mr. Bartlett, the man who calls Bush impostor, now declares that tax cuts don’t “starve the beast” of government growth. It’s not good enough for Bartlett that tax cuts have not recently starved the beast, nor that tax cuts are not currently starving it, both of which are fair enough judgments — or really, observations. But Bartlett has lost his patience for spectator sports, and only the wrath of judgment can satisfy. He seems audacious enough, in fact, to posit a whole new law of economics — two new laws, in fact — to consign the tax-cut “dogma” to the dustbin of history. It’s all happening at TimesSelect — but you can watch Bartlett’s logical pinata spill its guts and twist in the wind, free of charge, at Postmodern Conservative.
