Mr. Quarter noted in the online US News & World Report today that Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts was holding forth with his opinion as to why voters seem so angry at Washington these days. With that cutting insight for which he is well known, his answer was that:"I think there's a comprehension gap." I know, you really can't make this crap up.
In clarifying this insightfull observation, USNews and World Report reporter Paul Bedard put it this way: "[Kerry's]point [is that] while people may not be feeling the benefits of the bailouts and healthcare reform yet, Congress has been working with Obama to right the economic ship." That was charitable, but pretty much a whimp-out.
Senator Kerry then went on to observe of the electorate that, "There's a sense of some things unraveling" Well, no shit. What a surprise.
So, Senator Kerry apparently believes that we little people out here in taxpayer land just simply don't get it. Even though Washington is taking too much of our money away and spending even more, we just don't understand that it is all for our own good! I feel like such a child! It sort of reminds me of when my pop used to tell me that it was for my own good as he finished up a whipping.
Senator Kerry apparently summarized the problem by suggesting that the Democrats need "to better sell what we've done." Yeah sell it in a way that makes it not look like they took all of us for fools. Frankly, I don't think you can sell bullshit except as fertilizer.
When Senator Kerry opens his mouth, I really can only think of a single word: IDIOT!
