Stone deaf

After the Missouri residents that she represents in the Senate voted the other day by an overwhelming margin of more than 70% to opt themselves out of Dear Leader's socialist health care Ponzi scheme, Senator Claire McCaskill spouts a bunch of nonsense about "message received":

"McCaskill, however, makes the point that people 'don't realize' how beneficial the 'mandate' for health care will be. 'A lot of noise about the mandate that people have gotten so focused on that they don't realize that there's going to be more access and affordability and more choices,' she said."

"Oh, if only the stupid peasants would understand how we on Capitol Hill know so much better than they do about what's good for them, they'd loll about in ecstasy."  How condescending of the good lady.

Funny, it sure doesn't sound to us like she's understood any part of this communication, despite the emphasis with which it was delivered.  Perhaps the voters in Missouri should send her a much louder, clearer one at the next electoral opportunity.
