There seems to be a continuing and sever disconnect here. This story ran several days ago, many people posted comments on it, and now the comments are not connected to this story. I am sure thaey are alive and well in the archives and via other links, but it seems obvious to me that when the readers seem to overwhelmingly cite the bozo-like characteristics of various elected officials, the comments go away.

This is a new story, dingdong. The other story, with comments, is here: Web Link. And it was anything but overwhelming, with the haters snarling insults and then the other side saying, "so why do you think that? seems wrong to me" and giving reasons why it seemed wrong, and the haters having nothing to say in response to that.

I think you meant to say the elected representatives were dingdongs for trying to pull this scheme over on us and then spout off about how good a job they are doing.
