The Son-in-law Senator from Wisconsin

February 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment · Capitalism, Economics, Media, Politics, Populism, taxes, The Budget

The nice thing about “stupid” is that you don’t have to make anything up or manipulate anything or try to exaggerate anything…stupid is as stupid does. Rarely, however, do public men who are so stupid that you wonder how they can tie their shoes allow their stupidity to show up in the clear, bright glare […]
