I wanted to write something about the demonstration in DC today that said something a little more useful than “Wow, these people are dumbasses.” I think it was going to argue that the folks who showed up at today’s event had some legitimate concerns about government intrusion into the private affairs of citizens. Or maybe I was going to say that they had simply been led astray by right-wing commentators like Glenn Beck without understanding that he’s a shill for rich corporate interests disguising himself as a populist.
Then I ran across this.
And really, despite my very best intentions, all I can think of to say is:
Wow. These people are unbelievable dumbasses.
