Dumbfuckery du Jour

Can Cons really get any more hypocritical and ridiculous?  Haley Barbour is suddenly of the opinion that tax cuts must be paid for - if they're tax cuts suggested by those dirty Dems, that is:
Yesterday, in an attempt to reach out to Republicans and jump start the economy, President Obama proposed new tax breaks for businesses, which would allow them to write off the cost of new investment in plants and equipment through 2011. 

In an interview with the National Review, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R), whom Politico recently dubbed “the most powerful Republican in politics,” called Obama’s proposal “very good.” However, in keeping with the GOP’s reflexive opposition anything to Obama supports, Barbour said the “problem” with Obama’s plan is that “we do not know how he will pay for it“...
You've got to be fucking kidding me.  This is the party of tax cuts pay for themselves.  The party of "you should never have to offset cost" of tax cuts.  The party of tax cuts "expand tax revenue."  The party of the Tax Fairy.  This is the party that has been wailing and screaming and howling for tax cuts, positive that our every woe requires nothing more than a good tax cut to fix it, and damn the expense - until the President of the United States is a Democrat proposing tax cuts, in which case tax cuts maybe aren't so magical and must be paid for.  ZOMG WTF???

Double fucking standards, anyone?
