Team Nau­sea

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

While liv­ing in Paris in the early 1970s, I at­tended a din­ner at which William F. Buck­ley was the guest speaker. In re­sponse to a ques­tion as to why Richard Nixon had picked Spiro Agnew as his run­ning mate, Mr. Buck­ley replied, “to show his con­tempt for any fu­ture as­sas­sin.” It seems Barack Obama has echoed Nixon in pick­ing Joe Bi­den as his VP can­di­date.

The left-wing lib­eral es­tab­lish­ment has got what it wants: two ar­ro­gant, self­cen­tered, con­de­scend­ing in­di­vid­u­als who have never man­aged any­thing of con­se­quence, whose only adult jobs have been at one pub­lic trough or an­other, and who have no mil­i­tary ex­pe­ri­ence.

How­ever, they are qual­i­fied to in­sult us by telling us how dumb we are, and how only they can “fix” what they per­ceive is wrong with the United States. Just trust them. I think not.
