You Might Be A Pro-Freedom Policy Wonk If You Can Connect The Dots
SEE HERE Of course connecting the dots is a metaphor for critical thinking which appears to be in exceptionally short supply in Washington D.C. No doubt it is something in the water or maybe in the martinis. "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" so that once you're established in Washington you tend to disconnect not only from the dots but from everything else except the euphoric ecstasy of power which conveys a sense of infallibility and immortality at least in the narrow sense of being reelected. It's time to burst the bubble and bring a bunch of these bloviating bovines down to earth. Popping bovine bubbles can be great fun as well.
