NYTimes column watch

Today's installment: turn that Demonization Dial all the way up, Bob!

In today's column, we get a peek into the world of Times columnist Bob Herbert, a world in which the GOP agenda "is far more ideological, far more extreme, than most Americans realize."

You see, the Republicans push tax cuts so that the federal treasury will shrink, forcing Congress to cut or eliminate Medicare and Social Security.

Of course, we also have the clear and present danger which the GOP presents in the areas of environment and health & safety regulations, let alone the judicial nominees that are sure to come.

Clear evidence that Republicans want to poison the air, see workers maimed on the job, have people eat poisonous foods, and make the elderly starve.
