District of Corruption
It is hilarious watching this play out.
Jonathan Alter is on MSNBC talking about how the establishment is being held hostage by the people. You can tell that this balding little eunuch is visibly irritated.
Why won’t these boobs just raise the debt ceiling? Why won’t the rednecks – the hoi polloi of Virginia – listen to us? It has been done so many times before.
This is a man who is using the metaphorical ATM Machine of authority and is getting an “insufficient funds” message. The Tea Party is getting a taste of real power in this “debt ceiling” debate.
The establishment is getting a taste of what it is like to not have power. If history is our guide, once people get a taste of real power, the appetite for it becomes voracious.
Once people see weakness and indecision in their leaders, they despise them. Whatever the outcome of this particular battle, I am sure now the establishment will lose the war.
