Petty people---and their ignorance---in our political system

I have two quotes for you today:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY):  “There’s much for them" (the Democrats) to be angst-ridden about,” McConnell said with a chuckle. “If they think it’s bad now, wait till next year.”

Way to think about what's best for the country, Senator.


And number two, from Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, ever the fount of wisdom, intelligence and maturity:

During an appearance on WBAL radio last week, Steele was asked to address a concern from Indiana Committeeman Jim Bopp, Jr., who had claimed that the RNC chairman played the race card in framing his own reelection fight as a test that will "speak volumes about our willingness to truly be the party of Lincoln."
"Well, Mr. Bopp is an idiot," Steele responded on WBAL. "If he took that away from, and I don't want to be crass, and I don't want to throw stones at him, but I just think that's an idiotic statement to make."

We--the US--are better than this.

And we deserve better than this--from our legislators and everyone in and associated with our government.

definitely not my party's best and brightest for sure.

God, you'd think even if they were smart enough to listen to some PR strategy.

They should focus on debt and spending. It is an issue every American can identify with.

Seriously, wouldn't you think they'd ALL be focusing on debt and spending--but not on spending yet more, the way they've been doing.

But the beat goes on.


Merry Christmas
