"Now, I'm the first to admit that THE PEOPLE are not always right about what is best for them. Sometimes THE PEOPLE want to maintain slavery or segregation. Just because THE PEOPLE have a majority opinion on some issue doesn't make them right. That is why we have all these protections for minority opinions. But you have to be a blithering idiot to be able to look at the current landscape in America and think it is THE PEOPLE that are out of touch right now and not the denizens of the Beltway.
THE PEOPLE want an end to this administration and its war. They are well enough convinced that this government is not healthy and not serving their interests. It is the Beltway types that don't want to face up to consequences of their profound failures. THE PEOPLE can see the budget numbers, the casualty reports, the failed government services, and the official corruption. They need leadership from the people that can hold this government responsible. If people like Broder keep burying their heads in the sand it won't be too much longer before we have a return to 1960's style insurrection.
THE PEOPLE don't want to riot. They want the system to work. But the system is as broken as Alberto Gonzales' credibility. And we see the Beltway making excuses for perjury and obstruction of justice and failed wars of choice. This time THE PEOPLE are right. The bums must be thrown out. And Broder will lead the pack with a dunce cap on."
