Media watch: Giuliani surprisingly rational on Sanford sex scandal

Why ask Rudy Giuliani to weigh in on the Mark Sanford infidelity madness unless you're going to ask him directly about his own infidelity madness? MSNBC's Morning Joe misses the opportunity.

Forget the noise, spend our tax dollars already!

Awash in the sound and fury of today's anti-tax crusaders -- the refusenik governors, the tea party attendees, the screamers of "socialism," the Ayn Rand-loving libertarians "going Galt," the op-ed writing de facto leaders of the Republican party, the just plain fools -- you would think there was significant disagreement among the U.S. population on the big tax-spending stimulus package. There's not.
