From 2009, but still very germane

A good friend, Becky, sent me this beautiful little snippet, sans date,

Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re number one. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on “Macbeth”.

The three of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of speech. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.

and I went on a hunt for the full post. Really a good read, love the man's humor in examining a very dark time in American history. Those two paragraphs are at the end of the post, the beginning and middle are just as good.
