A platform with wedge potential

I’m almost afraid to mention this idea of April’s, fearing that somehow I might help reify it:

A reader suggested that we start the Free Candy Party, a place for the apathetic fringes of the Tea Party movement to integrate with the 26 year old children living off mummy and daddy as they slide from familial dependence to the governmental variety. Our key tenet is the “right” to a reasonable income — say, $100,000 a year. We’d like it in large bills, please, tax-free. But we’ll take $100,000 after tax, if we must.

I’d also like a clothing allowance, as I believe that it is my right to own several pairs of Louboutins and designer jeans.

Let’s hope Harry Reid doesn’t read this. And I suspect that in the long run, it would be cheaper for all of us to buy a pair of Louboutins and mail them to her.

    We all know that I write nearly everything to be read with a heavy dose of sarcasm, right? I mean, I actually hate free candy because it’s always the lint-covered, decades-old hard candies stuck at the bottom of Grandma’s purse. Butterscotch–bleh.
