Tar and feathers

Charles Lipson:

The electorate is furious. It's furious with Washington, Wall Street, hedge funds, big banks, lobbyists, fat cats in corner offices—all of them cutting special deals for themselves while average folks are left out. Voters know their real incomes are down. They know their retirements are in jeopardy, their kids are loaded with college debt, and everybody is looking at a tough job market. We are not in a recession, mind you, and employment is actually growing. No matter. All across the country, voters are saying, "We're mad as hell and we aren't gonna take it anymore.” That's why the most damning indictment this year is to be called an "establishment candidate.” The second most damning is to receive Mitt Romney's endorsement. If there was a ballot option for "tar-and-feather the lousy SOBs,” it would win in a landslide.

Exactly so.

1 And yet, I will bet that greater than 90% of congressmen facing election this year, will be reelected.

At Chizumatic, we take pride in being incomplete, incorrect, inconsistent, and unfair. We do all of them deliberately.
