From commenter g at Political Animal on the Herman Cain (r) story:

…On a side note – I am amused at the typical wingnut response to this fact, which is usually, “Oh, that doesn’t mean anything, payouts like this are the cost of doing business.”

If paying out $45,000 with no good reason other than to to make someone go away is no big deal, then why is adding a small percentage tax increase to personal incomes over $1 million such an earth-shaking, job-killing horror?

That’s a really good question.
