The Disconnect (Or The Weird Fucking People Who Inhabit Elite Washington)

We were told by Andrea Mitchell (among others) that the American public wanted Scooter Libby pardoned ... then we saw the polls in which Americans overwhelmingly say Scooter should NOT be pardoned.

We were told the American public would not support a timetable for American withdrawal from Iraq ... then the polls show Americans overwhelmingly support the timetable legislation passed by the Democrats.

Now we are being told by Time magazine editor Rick Stengel that Democrats are erring by pursuing the purge scandal and Karl Rove's involvement ... while the latest poll shows 60% of Americans feel that Democrats are spending the right amount of time or not enough time pursuing investigations of the Bush administration.

If you want a gut-wrenching visual of how disconnected from regular Americans these people are, just watch the video of MC Rove from the Washington press correspondents' dinner. Yes, these people are laughing at what is painfully unfunny.

  • I just heard that bit on NPR. The only thing that went through my mind the entire time I was listening to "MC ROVE" was, "Are you fucking kidding me?"

    Bush took a few humorous jabs at himself, but honestly, is this really the time for humor from the white house?
