This is pretty old,(note 235 million Population, and Tip O'Neil is SOH) and I am sure some of you here have seen it but I think that it merits a re-read.

From the Article;

"It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 235 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts - of incompetence and irresponsibility."

It may be old, but it's unfortunately even more relavant now.

Sotomayor is a classic example. Of all the judges our nation has produced that could possibly fill that seat, why do we have to go with one with such a huge question mark over her head?

The vast majority of those 435 in congress are not exactly unstanding citizens either, and some of them are down right crooked criminals who's background exposure would never get them a job anywhere else.

Should I also talk about professional incompetence. All those Ivy Legue educated judges and representatives, and very few of them can interpret the meanings of our rights as defined in the US Constitution. The fact that they spend our tax dollars and waste time deciphering plain English as written in the Constitution really makes me wonder about them.
