Why Government Doesn’t Work

March 29, 2007

It’s an article of faith for conservatives that “government doesn’t work.” And they’re right: Government doesn’t work — when conservatives control the government.

One of the reasons is turkeys like this guy, who would evidently be more comfortable running for the position of village witch doctor than congressman.

Brothers and sisters, join with me now in praying that Scott Garrett’s constituents see the light and return him to the private realm, where he can pursue his theological interests on his own time instead of the public dime.

    You know, I went to college with Garrett – I think he was a year ahead of me – and he was nowhere near this whacked back then. In fact, I seem to remember him indulging in some mildly derisive fun over Ralph the Clown, from the Christian Student Union. It really does sound like he’s lost his marbles and needs a long vacation.

    I have two questions:

    First, who’s paying for this Web site and its maintenance and second, why isn’t Scott Garrett named as one of the group’s members on the site? If he’s so into it (and he must be, since it looks like he’s taken to Biblical constructs in his speech), one would think he’d be proud to have his name listed on the site.

    I love how they quote some of the Founders, when there are other quotes from the same Founders that would refute what they’re trying to do. And wasn’t it Jefferson who argued against a daily prayer in Congress??

    Ok, so I had three questions.
