“Reader, suppose you were an idiot..."

Postby Endo Rockstar » Fri Jul 13, 2012 12:51 pm

Ezra Klein on the "Most hated Congress in history:"

The Wonk Blog

So Congress is the butt of every joke right now even with Romney making a strong move to invalidate his public service up until his run for the white house. Putting the fact that the country is going down the shitter aside, I love it. Democrats finally have been pushed to the breaking point and are fighting back. Is it counter productive to have the most partisan Congress in history? Hell yeah. But exposing the right is priceless.

I particularly liked this comment on the Supercommittee: "Having proven incapable of solving one of the country’s problems, they voluntarily created another problem that they also don’t know how to solve."

I wish I could feel that exposing the Republicans would do some good. But it won't. The people who voted them in are going to keep doing it.

I no longer understand their base. Simple lack of education doesn't explain it. Authoritarianism doesn't even explain it to my satisfaction. Authoritarianism works until somebody takes a good hard look at it, and we are, and they still get votes.

Why the bloody hell are all those people so fucking stupid?

I was asking for an explanation not a demonstration but yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

In the face of all that idiocy, all that proof, the best you can get out of 'em is "I know you are but what am I."

Okay, so based on Meade happy little dance, I ask you.

What good does it do to expose the right? Who's gonna notice?
