In the spirit of PJ O’Rourke: it’s been troublesome to see the Democrats on the Board of Supervisors being bullied by scum. Bullies do not deserve power. They are simple-minded sots who enjoy lording it over the people with their demands and commands. They would boss the leaves on the trees about which way to bend in the wind. They are the most vile type of prostitutes who will submit to any indignity, perform any vile act, do anything to achieve power.
In the same way, small people say wrong things. Irresponsible, they know less about social behavior than a caterpillar.
