Washington teeming with Harvard alumni - that explains a lot (Cartoon)

PASSADUMKEAG, Maine – November 29, 2011 – You can’t look in any direction in Washington without seeing a Harvard grad. In all branches of government, from elected officials to appointed czars and bureaucrats, the town seems overrun with the “brightest” and “smartest” from Harvard.

So why are things such a mess in Washington? It could be that Harvard’s greatest accomplishment has been to sell the idea that it produces exemplary graduates. Some have said it’s hard to get into Harvard, but it’s easy to stay.

Maybe the real allure of attending Harvard is that once you get in, the gravy train runs from graduation to Washington, DC.

An American’s Creed

I will not apologize:
For being human
For my genetic heritage
For being born American
For rising to my full potential
For being Christian
For defending Jews and Israel
For believing in the Constitution and the rule of law

If you wish to assign guilt:
Look to those who limit liberty
Look to those who deny peaceful dissent
Look to those who deny peaceful worship
Look to those who intentionally deceive
Look to those who take advantage for personal gain
Look to those who see weakness in mercy
Look to those who do not cherish human life
