Lower Your Taxes? Don’t Be A “Smartass!”

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Sunday, June 27, 2010, 9: 34 AM

Joe Biden takes a break from trying to save Russ Feingold’s re-election to a get some ice cream from a Wisconsin frozen custard vendor.

Biden: “How much do I owe you?”

Custard man: “Just lower our taxes and we’ll call it even.”

Biden: “Can’t you say something nice without being a smartass!”

John Hinderaker retorts:

Everyone involved laughed it off, but a serious point lingered. A simple way to think about the [Democrat] Party is, you’re the human being, they’re the tapeworm. Yet they claim a weird sort of parasite’s moral superiority over you: if you point out that they have their hand in your pocket, you’re a “smartass.” The [Democrat] Party needs to be torn, root and branch, from our public life.

Indeed.

There is a simple way to judge someone in a position of power, influence or wealth. We may judge them by how they treat people who cannot do anything to help them enhance or maintain their power, influence or wealth. The manner in which they treat store clerks, waiters, gardeners, nannies, the cleaning service, etc. They reveal their true character in these instances, and Joe Biden’s character precisely befits a Democrat politician.

    The guy’s a disgrace. The only reason Obama picked him is he makes Obama look smarter by comparison.
