American Political Economics 101

In a hilarious review of Glenn Beck's Beck University, blogger Steve Foster at The Donkey Edge describes how things work:
The school bullies (Republicans) constantly frighten (fear-monger) the other children (the middle and working class) with threats and lies (socialized medicine, the free market is self-correcting, the wealth will trickle down… I could go on) in order to steal their lunch money (tax cuts for the wealthy) so that they can spend it on candy (yachts, mansions, hookers and blow).
Of course, that's not quite how the lesson is taught at Beck U.
