But What's the Alternative?

David Brooks talks about the coming recession (yes, it still gets worse from here) and how the Democrat-controlled executive and legislative branches will respond. Granted, it isn't pretty, and it continues to grow the role of government in private lives, but what alternative is there? McCain and Palin have put forth very little information about what their answer would be. They clearly don't like the Democrats' plan, but they don't seem to offer any precise guidance of their own. Between a well thought out plan that I don't entirely agree with and an offer to, you know, just deal with it when we get there, I'll take the plan.
