The fiscal cliff deal, however sucky, still provides entertainment in the form of libs demanding the Bush tax rates save the economy.—

Since President George W. Bush implemented his tax cuts in 2001, Democrats have done nothing but hammer the cuts as a gift to wealthy Americans — until now, that is. As part of the fiscal cliff deal, the tax cuts will remain permanent for households making less than $450,000 annually. And suddenly, Dems are crawling all over themselves to take credit for the cuts. Last night, GOP Rep. Louis Gohmert zinged them for their about-face, thanking them for finally acknowledging that the tax cuts in fact benefit the middle class. Others are following suit, calling attention to Democrats’ hypocrisy:
Wait — tax cuts are good? That can’t be right!
Ah, that explains it.
Sure is funny how that works.
Fasten your seatbelt, Mr. President.
