Is there an editor in the house? Kudos to OpinionJournal.com's James Taranto for this zinger from columnist Molly Ivins, who proves once again that logic is an anathema to the liberal columnist.
"The first claim [of those who support tax cuts] is that the rich pay more in taxes in the first place. Well, yeah, they do--they have more money. The richest 1 percent have 18 percent of all the pretax income and they pay 36 percent of all personal income taxes."--Molly Ivins, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jan. 9
"The dirty little secret about taxes in this country is that rich people and corporations mostly don't pay them now--they have a whole system of shelters and offshore deals."--Molly Ivins, same column
Molly, here's a quarter -- get a clue.
