Scenes From the Ruling Class

Trent Lott, now working at a "powerhouse law and lobbying firm," lays it out for you.

Regarding the Shutdown, Lott says of Boehner and Co.:

"They've made their point," Lott huffed. "It's time to say enough and move on." Referring to the die-hard tea partiers in the House Republican caucus, he added, "These new guys don't care about making things work."

...

I asked Lott if his old GOP pals still serving in the Senate have lost control of their party. How do they feel about that? I inquired. Lott shook his head: "That Ted Cruz. They have to teach him something or cut his legs out from under him."

Cut his legs out? Yeah, Lott replied with a chuckle. He noted that when he was in the House in the 1980s he mounted a campaign against a fellow Republican who had challenged him for a leadership post. "Took me two years," he recalled. "But I got him. And he was out of the House." Recalling his vindictiveness and hardball politics, Lott chuckled once more. "Call me if you want more red meat," he said, before heading toward the car waiting for him.

There is an old saying that every profession is a conspiracy against the laity. It's quite true.

It's time to kick the professionals out of politics -- at least the elective offices.

We cannot endure a government which is so determined to rule against the wishes of the people.
