I passed an acquaintance of mine in the hall today - a rather soft, self-indulgent young fellow who has always struck me as possessing an unearned amount of esteem for his own intelligence - and I greeted him with a routine, "How's it going?" He paused a moment and said, "Ok, I guess. Just enjoying the last two months of America."

As he entered the men's room, I could not suppress murmuring the word "dumbass". Yet this is typical of so many of the bright young things whose knowledge of practically everything was formed within the inside-the-beltway echo chamber. It is doubtless unchristian of me, but I find the absolute shock being experienced by all these (formerly) complacent and smug cogs in the wheel of Leviathan to be extremely gratifying. And who knows? Perhaps a small handful will actually gain some wisdom from recent events.

A very few might see the light, Paco. But if a sizeable porttion of the left are anything like this cretin, don't get your hopes up.

The link goes to Ace (who gives a good summary), but you should go to the original site to get the full context.

I did, and I'm out of brain bleach.

How did we get through 8 years of Obama?

Paco said...

Bruce: I think alcohol might have been involved.

Jeff: A very few, indeed, Jeff.

I read that, JeffS, and I'm feeling kind of queasy now.

As for all those people mourning Hillary's loss, I'll be encountering a lot of them in the coming weeks. Pray for me. I don't want to go to jail.

Next time you see him, ask if he's booked his one way ticket to Toronto yet.

Hillary as Athena, a ruthless violent scary goddess who must be appeased. This election really stirred up the pond sediments didn't it?
