I realize this could have been pulled out of context but it always sends a shiver down my spine when a politico says something that pretty much confirms what I figured they were thinking. Usually, they’re so shielded with spin and marketing and effective PR that you don’t hear them say, “You’re stupid and I’m smart.”

Then there’s this quote from Elizabeth Edwards, who is a health care advisor to Barack Obama, expressing her dislike of McCain’s health care plan:

[she] said McCain’s plan fails in all important areas by leaving the decision-making process up to individuals, who can frequently “make stupid economics decisions.”

So true. The government never makes stupid economic decisions.
