Stupidest Quote Ever?

"There is a sort of an elitist idea that seeps into the head of a lot of people who get elected. And they begin to think of themselves as, really, there for only one purpose and that is to make laws. And why would you make laws? Well, because you know, better than anybody else what to do." - Tea Party hero, Tom Tancredo, running for Governor of Colorado on the Constitution Party ticket

My question for Mr. Tancredo is what the hell is a lawmaker supposed to do if not make laws?

Often times I wish more of our "representatives" would respect the Constitution that they swore to uphold and defend by voting AGAINST creating some new laws.

Interesting idea, but Tancredo was a Congressman for 10 years. He voted "yes" at least once in that decade, so I guess he considers himself and elitist.

Imagine the arrogance. Getting elected to Congress and actually doing something! This must be stopped.

And Paine, the tea party agenda - which consists of trying to repeal the 20th century - does require an affirmative vote every now and then, too.

T. Paine said...

I understand that, but voting "yes" everytime creates far more problems than if one were to vote "no" everytime. Of course I understand that there are bills worthy of voting for in the affirmative. Those seem few and far between nowadays.

If you want to post the stupidest quote ever, try this one from Biden last week, "Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive.” Now THAT is truly stupid!

Thanks for the quote, Mr. Breitbart, but what about the context?
