“I don’t take responsibility at all.”

Ah, the words of a true leader. The most beautiful words.

Another entry for the next Profiles in Courage.

This is just another great moral lesson from the great leader that we can pass on to the kids. If they follow his lead, there’s nothing to worry about for the future, right?

Who would have thought that a guy with all the moral fiber and intellect of a used car dealer with a lot filled with rusty Yugos would not be up to the task of steering a large nation through what might end up being the largest pandemic in modern history?

But, as my father, who suffers from dementia and is in a nursing facility that is now in lockdown with no visitation allowed, always said: We’re the most gullible people on the face of the Earth. Even now, in his current state of confusion, he makes more sense than the idiot charged with the responsibility of reacting to this crisis.

And the idiot’s response: “I don’t take responsibility at all.”


That’s not a thoughtful Hmmm.

Sorry for not being more uplifting this morning but I’m angry.

Check back tomorrow. I’ll try to be more hopeful then. Promise.
