Remember my mention of Sen. Lindsay Graham as a miserable

little bastard? Well, he's got company in plenty:
The candidate was outraged - just outraged - at the country's sorry fiscal state.

"We have managed to acquire $13 trillion of debt on our balance sheet," he fumed to a roomful of voters. "In my view, we have nothing to show for it."

And that was a Democrat, Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, who voted "yes" on the stimulus, the health-care overhaul, increased education funding and other costly bills Congress approved under his party's control.

Faced with a potential wipeout in November's midterm elections, candidates such as Bennet are embracing budget cuts with the enthusiasm of Reagan Republicans.
And they expect people to believe this shit.

I'm going to steaborrow this from Ace, just because it sums it up nicely:

Appropriately enough, it is played on the arse trumpet.
