As I said in my previous post about the book I am reading by Michael Moore, I like seeing scumbags called out, and U.S. bureaucrats are the biggest scumbags on earth (maybe in the universe?). But then there are times when the bureaucrats don’t need calling out, they call themselves out as complete idiots.
I saw it on the Reason.com blog and it was titled “Quote of the Day“. This was Senator Dodd describing how he felt after passage of the new financial overhaul bill. The interesting part was this:
No one will know until this is actually in place how it works. But we believe we’ve done something that has been needed for a long time.
Uh, did he really say that we don’t know how it will work but we went ahead and passed it anyway? So it might make things worse but they felt they needed to do something.
The truth is that the best thing that could possibly happen in America is if all the politicians were voted out and replaced with people who would just do nothing.
