The Tyranny Of The Ruling Class

The talk of the day thanks to Rush is a lengthy article at The American Spectator about Washington, D.C.'s ruling class which includes members of both parties and the MSM.

In a nutshell, this reality has become crystal clear lately thanks to the Tea Party. Career politicians in the Republican Party have shown their true colors thanks to the populist uprising. Former Utah Senator Bob Bennett has pretty much admitted he's routing for Harry Reid to win this November, while former Senator Majority Leader Trent Lott, who's now a lobbyist, said this when asked about the anti-establishment Republican candidates:

"We don't need a lot of Jim DeMint disciples. As soon as they get here, we need to co-opt them."

What's all the more frightening about this statement is who it comes from. Lott was once the leader of the Senate Republicans and for all intents and purposes, leader of the entire party for a time. Is it no wonder the Party has spent the last two-to-four years in the wilderness?
