Where Have I Heard That Before?
Do you love Politico? Sure, we all do. And one of the best ways to read the paper is to read TWI a few weeks earlier. For example, if you were reading TWI 10 weeks ago, you learned that Republicans on the Hill were treating “The Forgotten Man,” the revisionist history of the Great Depression by Amity Shlaes, as a rulebook for opposing the stimulus. The Politico has an update of that story today, with the added factoid that Shlaes has met with House Republicans.
If you read TWI nine weeks ago, you knew that Republicans were at a loss as to how to stop Democratic health care reforms. Want to find out if they’ve made progress? Check the update in yesterday’s Politico. And if you read TWI three weeks ago you found out about the just-introduced Parental Rights Amendment, which the Politico slightly oversold as “the new wedge issue” five days later.
