After a six-month run, it's time to retire the fisking of "A Day in the Life of Joe Republican" that once lived here.
The original was absurd, and the response has lived to serve its purpose. Both, however, are outdated and do nothing to serve any sort of good.
Really: Neither party is blameless. Don't we all have something better to do than make fun of each other for arbitrary political differences?
Instead of Joe Republican, perhaps you could be interested in some original research that you might find enlightening instead. There you will find evidence-based analysis of contemporary issues. Sometimes the conclusions will favor government intervention; sometimes they won't. Judge for yourself.
