  •  IMHO current legislator crop disproves your rant (1+ / 0-)

    The Tea Party additions to the Congress, the lot of them, are exceptionally inept, having brought the country close to the brink multiple times. Any fool who'd sign the "No New Taxes" pledge is suspect from the get go.

    They have succeeded in getting elected, but are too stupid and rigid to govern. They missed the sections in the textbooks about the need to compromise in order to govern.

    Judging by the way the polls have changed this election, even many voters, hopefully a majority, have learned the error of their ways and will vote for people who have enough brains to do the challenging job of governing.

    •  Ah, but what does success mean in politics? (0+ / 0-)

      You have admitted my point -- any jackass can succeed in getting elected.  In the case of James Inhofe and Louis Gohmert, multiple times.  By that measure, they are "successful" politicians.  

      As long as success in politics is measured by vote totals at the ballot box, and not on what one accomplishes, it will remain a profession where walking disasters can claim to be a success.

      Dubya is the perfect example, successful at stealing two elections, and every one of his policies was a complete disaster.  Come to think of it, did he do anything right?
