Incompetent Elected Official Of The Month AND Unethical Tweet Of The Week: Mass. State Rep. Lindsay Sabadosa (D-1st Hampshire District)

  • Do we really have more elected officials at the local, state and national levels who are spectacularly ignorant of basic civics and the U.S. Constitution, or does it just seem that way?
  • How typical is this idiot/totalitarian of Democrats generally?
  • How can anyone trust, never mind vote for, someone who thinks she won’t be pilloried for stating that government power should not be constrained by laws?
  • Incompetent elected officials like this are far, far more dangerous than Joy Behar, who thinks the Supreme Court passes bills. All Joy does is talk on TV. Sabadosa is in a position where her ignorance and fondness for government dictatorship can do real damage.

  1. Jack, can you please correct the headline, to reflect that Lindsay is a rep from Massachusetts, 1st Hampshire district. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy about the Commonwealth!.

  2. It’s not just that she is saying that the government should not be constrained by laws.

    She is saying that the federal courts are taking powers away from the federal government. This is a balance of powers issue. The powers are not going away; it is one branch flexing its muscles against another branch. The power is all still there.

    -Jut

  3. She wants her constituents ignorant so that they will agree with her that courts shouldn’t intervene where the Democrats are acting in everyone’s best interests…or say they are.

  4. Let’s for argument sake it was appropriate to issue the mask mandate on an emergency basis.

    The federal government had 3 years to issue a duly-promulgated regulation by an agency with appropriate statutory authority. That they chose not, instead relying on a continued emergency, to should be alarming.

    Julius, after all, was never emperor. He was just a duly elected consul given “emergency” powers.

  5. I hope I have this right…

    It feels to me like this is about a federal agency (in this case, the CDC) being able to – without a law being passed by Congress and signed by the President – become a de-facto “Congress” unto itself and create laws that all citizens must follow.

    If so, this is worse than “separation of powers” between the Three Branches. It is the weakening of the Legislative Branch by diluting it amongst a host of other entities. Rep. Sabadosa should be thanking the courts for intervening and protecting the Legislative Branch’s legitimacy.

  6. I think our elected officials absolutely have been this ignorant and stupid for a long time. The advent of social media lets these cretins display their stupidity for all the world to see.

    The cockroaches are always there, but you only see them when you turn the lights on…

  7. A small item, considering the comments above. But didn’t we all learn about the three branches of government in the 4th grade?

    And Jeff, the cockroach metaphor is a good one, but unfortunately it will haunt me for too long a time…

    • Yes, they tried to teach us all that in the fourth grade.
      Unfortunately, some people are restricted to a third-grade intellect…

  8. I think the plot was lost as soon as the word “co-equal” was invented to describe the three different branches of government.
