Leave Sil Alone

Ok, so Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) doesn't know Sunni from Shia. Does anyone care about that? What did knowing those things do for all those smartypants Republicans? What he does know are the things it is important to know for a congressguy, how to get elected, how to get along with party leadership, how not to be impeached as a judge. Knowing enough to not put large sums of money in the freezer is a bonus for which I am certainly grateful.

It's not that big a deal, but this still sounds like the kind of defense certain conservatives made of Dubya's gaffes back in 2000. Who wrote the op-ed implying that maybe dumb was the new smart? I think it was some WSJ dumbass. We need a No Pol Left Behind testing strategy.

We would have no congress.

Ooh, subtle. I didn't get it at first.
