Honestly, this pervasive, lingering myth that Republicans are great for the economy and Democrats are poison never ceases to baffle me.

The opposite is true. On every important measure — GDP growth, job creation, deficit spending, business investment growth — Democrats beat Republicans’ brains out, and they have for decades.

This only makes sense, of course. Democrats want to invest broadly in our economy, whereas Republicans love to balloon the deficit and hand fistfuls of cash to obscenely wealthy plutocrats just because.

So what would a “socialist Democrat” do? Probably invest in infrastructure and a forward-looking green economy; unshackle financially strapped workers who are burdened with crushing student loan debt; free would-be entrepreneurs who are scared to leave their jobs because they can’t lose their insurance; put more money in the hands of poor and middle class workers, who would be more apt to spend it; and protect our air, water, and natural resources, thus ensuring a sustainable future economy.

What won’t they do? Take credit for the previous president’s economy, like McCarthy just did. Why? There’s still a very good chance we’ll be in a recession by January 2021, because you could replace Donald Trump’s brain with a 9-volt battery plugged into a pimento loaf and very few people would be able to tell the difference.

Also, on economic policy, Trump has pretty faithfully followed the script of our last Republican president, and that dude left the economy in a smoldering Yucatan crater before skipping off to paint cat pictures or some shit.

Given all of this thoroughly documented historical data, why would anyone trust a Republican with the economy ever again?

Is Trump’s disgusting, tumescent blob of a head getting you down? Dear Fcking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing can help! Find it at Amazon, along with its sequels, Dear Prsident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief.
