I haven't seen a lot of posts about the "Debt Star," but there have been a few and a picture of it showed up at a "Tea Party" in Columbus, Ohio over the weekend.
Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit makes reference to it. It is clever and it helps identify a serious issue about our future, the debt we will get trying to spend our way out of this economic downturn. That is not to say Keynes was wrong, just that we didn't save up enough Federal money in the good times to help pay for turning the corner in the bad times.
If you haven't followed "Star Wars" you might not get it.
To be frank, however, I am still looking for hope, as I will blog about in a bit. A former Army Chief of Staff, Gordy Sullivan (Norwich University) coined the phrase "Hope is not a method," and then, upon retiring, wrote a book of the same name. At some level he is correct. At another level, he is very wrong.
Hope springs eternal, even amongst Republicans.
