Lenin coined the phrase “useful idiots” to describe those Westerners whose misplaced idealism led them to be Soviet sympathizers. Although they provided a free (yet priceless) service for the Soviets , the Communists held them in contempt. Their idiocy did nothing other than assist the greatest tyranny the world has ever know.
But at least their idiocy was well intentioned. And they were useful for something, even if it was to assist the Communists with the imprisonment, torture and murder of millions. But today’s useful idiots seem to have only one purpose; the advancement of idiocy.
Why in the world would the qualifications of a vice presidential candidate be under question because she has family issues? How is Sarah Palin’s daughter’s pregnancy, a mistake that no one is trying to hide, cause for political scandal? Palin’s not pregnant – her daughter is.
And her husband was convicted of a DUI 20 years ago? Really? There but for the grace of God… Perhaps she should have divorced him.
C’mon people, let’s put those stones down. You look like idiots.
