All Things Explained

Here is why I love Molly Ivins, who seems, to me, the lone voice of sanity deep in the heart of Bush Country:

"Earlier this month, Treasury Secretary John Snow observed, 'The fruits of strong economic growth are not spreading equally.' Yo. Phillip Swagel of the conservative American Enterprise Institute explains: 'The gains from the recovery haven't really filtered down. The gains have gone to owners of capital and not to workers.'"

What does one say to Mssrs. Snow & Swagel?

"No shit, Sherlock."
