GRANTED THEY OPERATE IN DIFFERENT VENUES Biden in the Senate and Bloomberg in the Mayoralty of New York City (The Biggest Hick Town in America), but still… The idiocy of the two of them could cancel out the spin of the Universe or something.
Sultan Knish quoted Bloomberg on guns:
I don’t think there’s any other developed country in the world that has remotely the problem we have. There’s no other place that allows- we have more guns than people in this country. Every place else, if there are murders they’re generally not done with guns – not generally, a lot more are not done with guns.
Now, Greenfield takes Bloomberg apart quite handily with a quote from Billy Madison:
Mr. Bloomberg, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
… but I have a take of my own. Whenever a politician makes reference to how they do things in the rest of the world, he/she/it needs to be bitch-slapped most definitely and reminded that America is NOT the rest of the world. We don’t WANT to be the rest of the world. The country exists for the express purpose of telling the rest of the world to fuck off and die. So if politician in question doesn’t like that we do things different from the the rest of the world, he/she/it ought to be encouraged to go live in those other countries and stop trying to fuck up this one.
