Village Bastard…

There’s a saying that every village has an idiot.

If you look at politics these days, it seems that what we have isn’t a village idiot;  we have a large collection of national idiots.  And, what’s worse, they don’t seem to realize that they’re idiots.

The reason that they don’t, of course, is that they’ve been elected.  This makes them feel special, as though their opinion matters more than the people who put them there.  And they’re going to have, I think, a very harsh wake-up call in the 2012 election.

Quite a lot of people are going to be upset with the results of the election.  Many of them will be Republicans, Tea Party members, and Libertarians.


And I find myself smiling at that possibility.
