NAPOLEON WAS RIGHT!
I won't spend a lot of energy mocking this congressman because he does a good enough job of that himself. I am however, impressed with his concern for this possible geological miracle. With his concern for the environment and global warming, what a great example of a politician that's really is working to make America a great country. Heartwarming. I wish I could laugh at this, but, frankly, it's too damned disturbing.
Then we have the example of the Republicans spending money at the Voyeur night club in order to court donors. Well done. It's certainly important to relate to all voter communities, even perverts. To add to this stupidity, the RNC Chairman and his cronies are doing a fine job promoting themselves as an alternative to Dem arrogance and constitution shredding policies. Some alternative.
I've often expressed my belief that the Repubs will be unable to go against their innate political arrogance and think of serving the people who elected them. Politicians have a sorry history of becoming so enamored with power that they forget that they were elected by their fellow citizens to represent them in Washington and to do their bidding. Their Burkean tendency to feel that they alone know what's best for their constituents is a strong tendency most aren't able to overcome.
Napoleon was right.
"In politics, stupidity is not a handicap."
I hope that some politician will awake and think about doing the job for which they have been elected. The American people are much smarter than most of the politicians they elect. Maybe the politicians should listen to them.
