In discussing Sarah Palin's comments regarding the horrific decision to build a trophy mosque next to the 9/11 site, Ross Baker a "political scientist" from Rutgers had this to say:
The Washington elite has had more experience than the general public in spotting phonies and opportunists who line their pockets by feeding raw meat to gullible people.
There is so much wrong with that sentence I don't know where to start. The "Washington Elite" couldn't spot a phony if they stared into a mirror all day. Phonies and opportunists are what has made a mess of our Federal government. Insider deals, corruption, favoritism, cronyism make DC "work." And the Democrat machine has become experts at selling their crap to "gullible people" for decades. How's that war on poverty going? Have we won it yet? Did you plug that hole daddy? Can I really keep my doctor and health care under Obamacare? Are those borders really more secure than ever?
You know there was an earthquake in Washington DC a short time ago. And even though I would not want anyone to lose their life or get hurt, it does bring me some satisfaction to know that if the earth suddenly swallowed DC, America would keep humming along and be more prosperous than ever. Washington elites need us. But we don't need them.
