With One Movement of the Hand, Eleanor Holmes Norton Proves Why Politicians and Washington DC Cannot Be Trusted with Any Responsibility Whatsoever

She was going to test-ride a driverless car.

She got in. She observed a big red button on the central panel of the car. The button was plainly marked, in large letters, "Emergency Stop."

So she did what any three year old would do: She punched the button. Like, immediately.

The Emergency Stop button disables the car, an engineer explained to her a moment later. Being an Emergency Stop and all.

So the car stopped working -- in fact, she didn't even get to ride in it at all. She immediately rendered it nonworking after sitting in the passenger seat.

So there you go.

A stupid and impulsive woman who pounds buttons on unfamiliar machinery rather than asking the engineer seated right next to her what the button does is one of the Congressmen dictating every aspect of economic life in the nation.

Watch the video. Notice how quickly, how aggressively, Eleanor Holmes Norton springs to do the One Thing she could possibly do to destroy the idiot-proof car.
