To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Idiot of the Week/Bachmann

Now why on earth--you may wonder--would Dooley and I present the coveted Idiot of the Week award to Michele Bachmann?

I know, this one seems a bit incongruous. After all, RBP doesn't cotton much to right wing ideologues, and seeing another one fade to inconsequential, like Sarah, ought to make Dooley and I happy, right?

But it doesn't, and here's why.  Because Dooley and I are disappointed in her recent decision to eschew another congressional run.  Her decision makes her a quitter, which is all the info we need to determine she is indeed idiotic.

All that power, all that free TV time, all that taxpayer money, perks, fame, Fox News cameos, Republican sex, etc., will now  undeservedly go toward someone else, someone who hasn't a chance of being as entertaining as the Minnesota  bombshell with the Holy Bible strapped between her thighs.  Frankly, that saddens us.

What a waste.

Just as importantly, whomever takes her seat might actually have a brain, and that scares us.
