Round One

The devil's in the details, to be sure, but when I heard this from House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) on Fox News Sunday yesterday previewing his 2012 budget proposal, I was heartened:
“We are giving them (Democrats) a political weapon to go against us...But they will have to lie and demagogue to make it a weapon…Shame on them if they do that.”
As everyone knows, from either the Left or the Right, this is a fight that simply must be fought.  The time is now.  The result will not be anything like a 100% - 0%, first-round KO.  Nor will it a 75%-25% TKO.  Nor even a 60% - 40% unanimous decision.  It'll likely be something more on the order of a 55% - 45% (or closer still) split decision. 

But a win's a win and, if I may switch metaphors for a moment, the fruit will not be found in the victory itself, but, rather, in the fruit the victory will bear.

Seconds out!  (back to boxing)
