Rep. Scott Brinkman sat down for an interview with a Louisville Courier Journal reporter recently in which he praised the wealth redistribution policies of Sen. Barack Obama and the energy policies of President Jimmy Carter.
The answer, Brinkman said, is more taxation and more government spending. Oh, and more borrowing. But I’m sure he meant that to fall under “more taxation.”
Amazing passage, in Brinkman’s words, below. It’s noteworthy, I suppose, that Brinkman is a Republican.

Can’t imagine my opinion would have been welcomed at lunch that day. But I sure would like to help Rep. Brinkman expand his list of economic stimulants.
