Republicans are tone deaf on regulations

Wow, lately Republicans have been hammering federal regulations on business as the evil which is hurting the economy. Huh? The 2008 economic meltdown was caused by banks investing in risky unregulated derivatives. Anyway, last night Stephen Colbert did a piece on Florida state representative Ritch Workman's plan to get rid of a regulation that prohibits Dwarf Tossing. Yeah, the economy needs to deregulate dwarf tossing. Folks, this is why I'm not a Republican. And check out Senator John McCain's stupid comment where he says regulations have cost billions and billions of jobs. Billions? People, this man could have been President with Sarah Palin one heartbeat away from the presidency. Oy. Anyway, here's Stephen.
