Manuel, Ms. Perino is more to be pitied than censured. After all, they knew she was dumb. She is the same ignoramus who was stumped when a reporter recently asked a question that referred to the Cuban Missile Crisis. But ignorance is strength, right? And in the new government, ignorance and strength will abound. Major league. Big time.
This time around, Perino tries to sound threatening: “We’re trying to do is get banks to do what they are supposed to do, which is support the system that we have in America.” No matter who wins, we can be sure that the government will be threatening us all with reprisals — or worse — if we don’t “support the system that we have in America” — their system, that is.
By the way, Manuel, do you love Big Brother? He wants you to support his “system,” you know. To paraphrase LBJ, strongarming his fellow senators fifty years ago, “It’s a shame how many of you guys have been sent to Room 101.”1:52 pm on October 28, 2008 Email Christopher Manion
