Ignorance-is-Bliss Senate Class of 2011
In a back-to-school speech, the President advises students to study and stay out of trouble: “That kind of discipline and drive–that kind of hard work–is absolutely essential for success.”
He may want to save a tape of that exhortation for the new Congress next January, which could be posing for its class picture under a sign , “We Won Because We’re Not the Other Guy.”
This year’s ignorance-is-bliss election has reached a point of absurdity to revolt even Karl Rove, not hitherto known for a queasy stomach, who is now being attacked as “an establishment Beltway strategist” for “trashing” the Delaware primary winner on Fox News even as he joins the defeated candidate in not endorsing her and the Republican National Committee in not planning to fund her.
The State Party Chairman sums up the reaction: “I could buy a parrot and train it to say, ‘tax cuts,’ but at the end of the day, it’s still a parrot, not a conservative.” This is sounding more like Monty Python than the GOP.
