Consider the following:
Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal: “We have learned something very important since the days that I served in Vietnam…” Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal never served in Vietnam.
And this from Fox News concerning philanderer Mark Souder:
All the way through his election, Souder tried to knock down the affair story, calling it revenge politics at play. But the backroom chatter in Indiana and among the GOP on Capitol Hill became too much to survive. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels was informed as late as Monday night that Souder would give up his post.
BP’s chief executive Tony Hayward claimed:
“I think the environmental impact of this disaster is likely to have been very, very modest…”
You know, these power clowns just don’t get it. Americans just don’t like liars (or raging idiots or elitist wanna-bes or cheap-shot artists or morally bankrupt selfish SOBs or condescending “intellectuals” or…)
In short, we don’t like arrogance and hubris – for the rest of us, that sort of behavior is not only counterproductive, but (gasp!) shameful. And we eventually decide to do something about our elected officials who embody such traits: like Arlen Specter, who just lost his primary to Joe Sestak… See what I mean?
