Senators Saying Stupid Things

The slut! Wearing that little thing, walking down that street, at that time of day?. She was asking for it!

Wait, what? That was spoken by Claire McCaskell, loathsome and corrupt Senator from Missouri[*1] , to the admittedly loathsome and creepy “Dr. Oz?”

Oh. That’s completely, totally different. Because androphobia. After all, girrrrls rule, boys drool, right? Guys need to be careful. Women, on the other hand, don’t. Especially with what they say, apparently.

With all the blather about the “war on women,” how about a little attention to the ongoing, rampant “war on men?” Think of that the next time you watch a TV commercial where the dopey husband is set straight by the long-suffering, smarter-than-he-is wife . . . or daughter.

It’s everywhere. You’re soaking in it.

Check your prejudices.

And because people can be stupid: the second paragraph in this post is what is called sarcasm. It’s a rhetorical technique. It can confuse the easily confusable. Sorry about that. Get smarter.

7. Washington Corruption
6. Washington One Percenters
5. Washington Dictators
4. Washington Apparatchiks
3. Washington Erasers

Just a few ideas off the top of my head . . .

The words of our President

Our first President, that is, not the person occupying the office at this moment. In a letter to the Marquis de Lafayette, dated April 28, 1788[*1] :

In answer to the observations you make on the probability of my election to the Presidency (knowing me as you do) I need only say, that it has no enticing charms, and no fascinating allurements for me. However, it might not be decent for me to say I would refuse to accept or even to speak much about an appointment, which may never take place: for in so doing, one might possibly incur the application of the moral resulting from that Fable, in which the Fox is represented as inveighing against the sourness of the grapes, because he could not reach them. All that it will be necessary to add, my dear Marquis, in order to show my decided predilection, is, that, (at my time of life and under my circumstances) the encreasing infirmities of nature and the growing love of retirement do not permit me to entertain a wish beyond that of living and dying an honest man on my own farm. Let those follow the pursuits of ambition and fame, who have a keener relish for them, or who may have more years, in store, for the enjoyment.

I have often said that the only person who can be trusted with the office of the President is somebody who manifestly, honestly, does not want it.
