I have a few friends that are attorneys that don’t suffer fools gladly. I have been speaking independently to two of them. They don’t know each other and likely will never meet each other. They pursued different facets of the law, and each was successful in their career.
I hadn’t heard the term in a long long time. I think the last time was in Animal House.
I have met several prominent politicians from both sides of the aisle in my life. For example, several years ago, I got to spend some quality time with current Senate leader Chuck Schumer. Schumer and I don’t agree on policy at all. He’s a pleasant enough person, and he is intelligent. Same with Dick Durbin. Dick is not unintelligent.
I had breakfast once with Senator John Thune and he is a great conversationalist, and thoughtful. Met John Kerry, and while he’s an ass hole, he has a brain. I had an extended conversation with Senator Joe Lieberman once, and he is really a bright guy.
I never agreed with President Obama. I think his vision of the future is backward. But, he’s intelligent. He has an intellect.
You feel like even if you don’t agree with these people, they at least bring up cogent points to ponder. They at least expand your world view.
Some politicians like Elizabeth Warren who totally lied about being an Indian, or Bernie Sanders, who is a communist, don’t deserve to occupy an office in America. I am shocked there are people that vote for them. They are anti-American, and terrible for the discourse in our society.
Of course, there are some truly dumb people in Congress. Hank Johnson asking if Guam will tip is one example. Kids, it wasn’t the allergy medicine. He’s an idiot. He has no business serving in Congress or on a committee.
Some elected officials are just political hacks. Many are grifters. When they leave office, they will get a nice fat lobbying job. Here’s looking at you, Lindsay Graham. But, sometimes you really do find a thoughtful intelligent person. I know, I have met them and it is refreshing when you do.
Our current occupants of the White House are truly dumb. They aren’t intelligent in the least. There are people that you will meet in the average grocery store line that have more intellect, and are more thoughtful than those two.
That occurred to me when watching this response to a question on inflation.
Harris freezes and responds like a D minus idiot who was cold-called in a class. She isn’t competent. Literally, the only way she got to where she is was on her knees, and because she was the right gender/color.
It’s not polite in elite circles to point this out, but everyone knows and the more they speak, the more evident it becomes. They are dumb. They couldn’t spell cat if you spotted them the C and the T.
I doubt if Harris could draw supply and demand curves correctly on the blackboard.
Can you imagine either of these two jamokes on the opposite side of the table with President Xi or Putin? They are outclassed significantly. It’s terrible. I never felt that way with President Obama and certainly didn’t feel that way with President Trump who knew how to read a room and people.
She and the President don’t deserve our respect. They do deserve our scorn. America is in a sorry state with them in power.
