Because Mocking the Citizens Usually Works

It seems that Barney Frank has found a way to convince the American people to get behind health care reform.

Or maybe not.

It never ceases to amaze me how elitist many politicians, at all levels of government, and regardless of political stripe, have become. They think they are smarter, more gifted, more talented. That they know what is best for us, because we are uneducated dolts.

When will people tire of this? How is it that these arrogant people keep getting re-elected? Do their constituents feel better when they are demeaned and compared to furniture?

How is it that these arrogant people keep getting re-elected?

That amazes and mystifies me as well. Why ANYONE would continually re-elect people like Pelosi and Frank just baffles.

Pelosi? You'd have to spend a little bit of time in her district to understand, but you would. Frank? All I can think of is one of my commenters, Arthurstone. Smug, cynical, and absolutely certain that anyone to the right of him is a complete moron. I know people just like that in person, and trust me, you don't want to spend much time around them. But they would vote for a guy like Barney Frank, over and over, because voting for a gay man, even one so utterly morally bankrupt, is a way to stick it to conservatives.

Buck said...

Ah, Gordon. I spent more time than I really wanted to in Pelosi's district (I worked in SFO from 2000 - 2002 but lived elsewhere) and I STILL don't get it. Srsly.

Buck: I think that to a large degree many people choose to remain ignorant of politics, and just vote based on name recognition.

Gordon: He does remind me of Arthurstone, now that you mention it.

I'm with you guys. I just don't get it. The vast majority of folks I talk to say the same thing, so how do they get re-elected? Again, I think the majority of people vote on either name recognition, strict party lines, or on a single issue. Most scary is the practice of voting AGAINST a candidate, regardless of the consequences.

I used to give talks at the University near where I was stationed and I always tried to stress that voting against a candidate is dangerous.

I hate to say it, but I do over and over; most Americans are lazy. Too lazy to really become informed on both issues and candidates. Too lazy to get out and actually cast a vote. Too lazy to get involved in the process.
