Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

The Confidence Fairy


Contrast the Free Market Fairy.

Not Cute.

The Confidence Fairy is like the confidence man (usually abbreviated as "con man"). She uses her good looks and power of cute to con people out of their, uhm, Halloween candy (in this case). She wants *all* the candy! Uhm, metaphorically speaking, in the case of the real economy ;).

Never underestimate the power of cute!

Conservatives always wrap horrible policy concepts in attractive garb: "fair tax", "no child left behind," etc.

Just a bunch of crooks and liars.
