As you may or may not know, “making Popehat” is generally not a good thing.
This time it’s for the words of one Tommy Tucker, the “distinguished” state senator from Union county who has the balls to straight up tell it like it is:
I AM THE SENATOR.
YOU ARE THE CITIZEN.
YOU NEED TO BE QUIET
A part of me does admire his honesty! It’s true, listening to constituents bitching must be incredibly taxing for somebody of his stature; it sort of reminds me of the old customer service employee mantra: “This job would be great, if it wasn’t for the customers.”
Wouldn’t governing be so much more fun if those pesky citizens would all just kind of go away, so you can get back to the important stuff? Like, I don’t know, working on legislation to remove limits on
bribes gifts to important people, like State Senators?
A much larger part of me thinks that this dude is just a jackass, though. In fact, I’m going to go ahead and call it: Senator Tucker, you are my jackass of the week! Congrats!
