A perfect example would be Chris Mathews. He may talk fast and is bombastic, but when you break down what he says there is no real intelligence there. He is a bully and a name caller who passes himself off as an intellectual and by the liberal establishments definition he is. If you make fun of or laugh at other people and call them names it makes you appear to be more intelligent than them. This is the primary formula for the establishmedia.
When you look at the liberal political landscape you find even less intelligence. Can anybody say Pelosi or Reid is intelligent? Once again we have people who follow the formula of calling names and using corruption to make it into the highest levels of gummit and mess things up. They both basically sound like morons but they dont have to worry since they are part of the liberal establishment and the Three Pillars (academia, media and the DNC) will promote their agenda without questions.
The “smart” people on the Hill are the lobbyists who write all the laws and even the arguments for the laws. If you picture a criminal hierarchy where the “brains” of the operation figure out how the heist can be pulled off but then shift all the risk to dimwitted henchmen who will take the fall if something goes wrong you’ll have an accurate picture of how things work in Congress.
Also, there is a staggering amount of shadowy, semi-illicit sex going on up there but who’s watching?
It is the guys in the background who really call the shots. Even in the administration its valjar who runs the govt., the bent axel political strategy and plouffe,jay carney and others in charge of cleaning up the damage.
Zero remains a front man who fund raises, campaigns, plays golf, with Reggie, basketball and goes on vacations with his supposed wife.
