"Bold"

Nein, Nein, Nein

Voices on my teevee today telling me Herman's 9-9-9 plan is ridiculous, half-baked, and sure to bring on a second recession.  But each "analyst" wrapped with a reminder that it was bold.

If there is one thing I've learned from Adam Sandler's career in "film" as it relates to real world politics its that anyone can have an idea and get others on board supporting it (see every director or studio responsible for every movie Sandler has made besides Punch Drunk Love).

Just because an idea is so ridiculous only one moron thought of it doesn't make it bold. Declarations of boldness should be reserved for those ideas that not only stand out but that are also, you know, good ideas.
