Is He A Dumbass Or Does He Just Play One On The Teevee

I'd don't really like meeting politicians, except for the seemingly few who are willing and able to stop being "on" and act like normal human beings, but I've met a bunch over the years and what I'm almost always struck by is that they come across as being a lot more intelligent than I would have expected. I don't mean that I assume all politicians are dumb, I mean that our political discourse is often so dumb that people operating within its confines usually sound pretty damn dumb.

So, no, I don't know if they actually think spending caps are a good idea, and are therefore idiots, or if they're just dancing.
