Govern THIS, Pal

This is quite possibly the most intellectually bereft assemblage of words, phrases and punctuation you'll read all week.

Matthew Yglesias: Ungovernable America

The smarter elements in Washington DC are starting to pick up on the fact that it’s not tactical errors on the part of the president that make it hard to get things done, it’s the fact that the country has become ungovernable.

A country founded on the principles of economic freedom and individual liberty, and populated with people who believe in such things should be ungovernable by a devoted disciple of Karl Marx, raised on the tenets of radical leftism, with the raw sewage of Chicago thug politics flowing in his veins, and who finds such principles offensive and considers them an obstacle to power.

This "ungovernability" of which he speaks is a feature, not a bug.

Seems to me like he's all bent out of shape over the realization that the American people are, by and large, so darned "uncontrollable". What's wrong with us? Don't we know what best for us???

According to Yglesias and all the other like-minded "smarter elements" polluting our nation's capital, we should all roll over and let Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Holder have their way with us and our families.

For our own good.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to pass on that option.
