Robin Hood

Last week's tirade between Senator Robert Byrd & Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill as to who had the more impoverished childhood was hilarious. Fox News had the best take on it by running part of the Monty Python skit that was almost identical. Actually, the members of National Review's Corner discussion blog had mentioned the similarity to Monty Python right after the actual event.

Senator Byrd has long been the epitome of what is so wrong with the ever increasing size of the Imperial Federal Government. He has long held the title of Top Pork Provider by taking huge sums of money from working Americans and sending it to his cronies in his home state of West Virginia. On a more relevant and serious note, Ann Coulter addresses the contrast between Byrd & O'Neill and the fact that while O'Neill's wealth came from his own hard work and wise investments, Byrd's billions have come directly out of the pockets of taxpayers.

Whether you consider Robin Hood to be a good person or not depends on whether you are the "evil rich" taxpayer being plundered or the "poor" person receiving the loot. As another old quote goes: "When you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on the full support of Paul."
