Does your cat bark?

If you want a good laugh read this absurd article from the Lefty Mother Jones magazine. You can tell they lost the plot long ago when they claim that the Bush administration "has radically reduced the size of government." If by "radically reduce the size of government" you actually mean increase federal spending massively, add vast new bureaucracies, expand the powers of the state, reduce Constitution protections for civil liberties, invade two countries, spy on American citizens, institute de facto internal passports, etc., then I guess you can say that Bush has radically decreased the size of government. But then I guess you can call gaining 40lbs a "diet" as well. You can call something anything you want. But calling your cat "Fido" won't mean it will bark.
