Grimm Brothers: Gonzales and Thompson

If you like fairy tales, just look at the morning papers. Two Republicans, Fred Thompson and Arturo Gonzales, are updating the Grimm Brothers.

Uncle Fred is recycling the old one from the master storyteller of your parents' time, Ronald Reagan, about the magic tax cuts, the trickle-down and the beanstalk that grows to the sky.

The tooth fairy is back in Uncle Arturo's tale of how, while we are all tucked safely in bed, he and his elves who never sleep have been watching over us unselfishly day and night.

Now, children, just close your eyes until November 2008, and it will be Morning in America again with porridge for everybody.
