If you’re sick, do you try to choose the smartest doctor or the dumbest?
When you want an accountant, do you want to feel confidence in the ability of that man/woman to add, subtract, multiply and divide? Use excel formulas?
When you need legal assistance, do you want a wise man/woman or a dope?
These are not trick questions.
I’ve always asked myself similar questions about the people who want to run my country. I want the smartest people in office, from Town Selectman to President. Naturally, that means I’m a Democrat.
But you know, I always sort of figured that Republicans at least thought (mistakenly) that theirs were the smart candidates.
Ummm, not so much. At least, not according to one of the GOP’s shining stars, Rick Santorum. You know, Rick “Don’t Google Me” Santorum, the former Senator from Pennsylvania (who lost by 18 percent!) who was also a former GOP candidate for President just this year.
Listen up to Ricky speaking just the other day to the Values Voter Summit here in DC:
We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country. We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.
Well, Duh!!!!! You got that right, Ricky. But is it something to be proud of?
