As a bonus, there is quote from Irving Kristol:
"I was not certain of its economic merits but quickly saw its political possibilities."Translation: It may not work in practice, but it's election gold.

Update 7/26/12. I want refer to this post so frequently that I can't leave it as mostly a link. I have to say what the Two Santas are:
- Santa Dem brings all the children lots of government services.
- Santa GOP brings all the children tax cuts.
- Both Santas blow huge holes in the federal budget. Fundamentally, they aren't that different.
Now that you know the core of Two Santa theory, I still recommend reading the original column. It's short, readable, and more fun than ... um, two Santas.
