Editorial Sketch of the Week: A wedgie well-deserved
Pat Bagley is a former Republican who became a self-described "liberal independent" during George W. Bush's two terms in The White House. Though his point in the piece below is intended as a criticism aimed at the GOP's unwavering stance against Obama's federal expenditures – and the resulting debt deal that followed two weeks ago – I'm more inclined to look upon Bagley's silly little indictment as a depiction of our President getting exactly what he and his party deserved. After all, any administration that makes "W." appear fiscally responsible, by comparison, forces the other side to act accordingly.
