McPadden on “when the going gets tough.”

This Fifth District Republican primary is really separating the men from the boys:

[Robert] Hurt is a likable person personally, [Mike] McPadden said, but “Democrats and moderates like Hurt will vote to raise taxes when the going gets tough.”

That’s right—if the U.S. were (say) invaded by China, that namby-pamby Tom Perrillo or the spineless Robert Hurt would probably do something pathetic, like fund the war with a two point tax increase on the wealthy. When the going gets tough, it takes a real man like Mike McPadden to recognize a great business opportunity for Chinese language tutors. The free market to the rescue again!
