Well, well, well

Turns out that it’s Senator Bob Menendez (D-bag) who’s holding up the resolution honoring the late Margaret Thatcher.

Yes, that Senator Menendez, an ethically-challenged political hack whose historical significance will ultimately prove to be microscopic compared to the monumental achievements of Thatcher.

If the quality of our elected officials does, indeed, reflect our character as a people, then we are truly a sad lot. Of course, Baroness Thatcher’s own countrymen are doing rather well at disgracing themselves, too
The display of incivility has not been confined to the usual suspects — trust fund radicals, union thugs, coddled “students,” entertainment humbugs…and other divisions of the bone idle looking for a little fun. One of the most repellant proceeds from a balding, overweight, 52-year-old Scotland Yard sergeant, who tweeted that he hoped Mrs. Thatcher’s death was “painful and degrading.”

Many of these malcontents are spending this week banging their spoons on their high chairs.

Haven't they, though? As the author notes, it seems the more handouts they get, the more they resent it.

Most of the malcontents hadn't even been born yet when Mrs Thatcher left office (not by election defeat, but by a Cabinet coup led by pansy-assed statist bureaucrats and City bankers, like John Major - and the Tories have never recovered from that disgrace), and only know what they've been told by failed Marxist revolutionary-wannabes teaching them in government schools.

The Scotland Yard man has now "retired", good.
