“I voted Republican this year; the Democrats left a bad taste in my mouth.” — Monica Lewinsky
“Most guys who don’t like me are either Democrats or Yankee fans.” — Curt Schillling

“The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.” — Robert A. Heinlein
Modern Democrats — or, more properly, Socialist Jackasses — pretend to be the conscience of the nation; the stalwart defenders of the rights, real and imagined, of everything and everybody except unborn babies and conservative Republicans. In reality, they’re petty tyrants, dedicated to the “fundamental transformation” of the free enterprise system, and to the proposition that all peasants are created to toil equally in the service of the grand and glorious State which Democrats will, of course, administer.
But for most of the Jackasses, the political is not only personal, it’s profitable:
Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states such as New York and California.
In the Senate, we have Dems like John Kerry, who made his money the old fashioned way — he proposed to it — and Dirty Harry Reid, a lifelong politician who garnered millions by staying as far away from honest labor as he could possibly get.
There’s the former community organizer unaccountably promoted to the office of Commander-In-Chief; a piker, perhaps, when compared to his fellow well-to-do Jackasses, but able nonetheless to dispose of millions of taxpayer dollars on a myriad of family vacations that seemingly occur with the regularity of weekends.
Then we have Democrats like Whining Jim Moran of Virginia. Whining Jim, at 174 grand per annum, believes he’s grossly underpaid. Maybe so. But since he’s been in office for 23 years, and his only reported asset is a modest money market account, he’s either the only honest man in Congress or its most incompetent thief. Moran believes that he and his felonious colleagues are members of the board of directors of the “largest economic entity in the world” and should be paid accordingly. But, as Rick Moran (no relation) points out,
“Those bozos can’t even run the congressional gym and Moran has delusions about controlling a $13 trillion economy?”
Democrats may have, as Dave Barry famously remarked, the management skills of celery, but there’s no denying that they possess a keen nose for other people’s cabbage.
