It really makes me proud to live in a state where my senior senator, with an IQ of 37, and my junior senator, with an IQ of 29, get to represent me.   The point of representative government was to find those leaders within the community with the greatest virtue, accomplishment, wisdom and integrity to speak for the rest.   It was assumed these people would also be among the most intelligent.   That leaves the average Californian IQ right around 19 break head, me hurt got.

Rush played some excerpts of Dianne Feinstein whining on the floor of Congress; hundreds of aliens are dying each year while trying to cross our border illegally.   Because of these tragedies we must pass the current immigration bill to assuage these deaths.

Bank robbers can be shot by police in the commission of their crime.   We must pass a bill to make it easier to rob banks.

People are getting speeding tickets for driving eighty miles an hour.   We must pass a bill to raise the speed limit because too many people are getting tickets!

Way too many child molesters are being arrested these days.   If we could just lower the age of consent to seven, most of these arrests would be unnecessary.

Is this really the best mind the 38 million people of California could find to send to the United States Senate?

I’m having way too difficult a time running my business and paying the payroll and income taxes.   We need to pass a bill to reduce payroll and income taxes.

Now if Senator Feinstein would talk like that, I just might be able to get behind her.   We’ll never hear that however, that would never expand the welfare state, persecute the working middle class, and add the right kind of voters to her constituency.  

The promulgation of her kind of politics requires low-skilled and low-educated individuals who think government is going to give them something.   And she is right their passing out nickels.   Of course she has her hands in your pockets taking out dollars.

It is quite a shame that poor destitute Mexicans leaving their corrupt nation in search of a better life here in the United States have died on their journey.   It is also unfortunate that the Islamic government of Sudan has encouraged genocide of its black inhabitants in Darfur, but we don’t use that fact to drive our immigration policy.

It’s kind of like pulling off the road with a flat tire and then having the mechanic rebuild your engine because the car doesn’t turn left good anymore.   One thing has nothing to do with the other.

I know I’m a heartless prick because I don’t feel sorry for the tire!

It’s doubtful this column’s title will be remembered as one of my most eloquent, but what do you expect from a guy with an IQ of 19?   Sometimes elegant prose flies right over a reader’s head and that must be the case for the average Californian, how else can we explain such brilliant representation in Senators named Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein?

Someone is going to read this article and think it is ridiculous, but ramming through a bad immigration bill because lawbreakers are dying in the desert; that makes perfect sense.
