OK, then what you probably want to think about doing is to sell off in your IRA from the most tax-efficient assets -- typically stocks -- and then buy the same stuff back on the taxable side. This assumes you have adequate funds elsewhere in your taxable account to pay for the taxes on your RMD. Otherwise, hold back an amount of the RMD for taxes and put the rest in the stocks.
or go out and buy something frivolous.
