If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Grope & Change!

There's a great analogy on just why we don't want a government bureaucracy taking over our health care system to be found in the TSA fiasco.  When a mindless bureaucracy is placed in charge of ANYTHING...especially when political correctness forces security screeners to grope grandma's, children and nuns looking for "explosives" is exactly why we don't want our government involved in health care.

To put it bluntly, governmental bureaucrats just don't give a shit about you, as long as their rules and regulations are being followed.  They only have the power to say NO! and use that power whenever and where ever they can.  This is from Legal Insurrection:
In a nation already revolting at the ballot box against overly intrusive government, the prospect of having your junk fondled out of bureaucratic inflexibility and political correctness is feeding the anger. Providing security at airports and generally is a perfectly appropriate role for government. But the seemingly mindless TSA screening procedures show what happens when bureaucracy takes over.
 Because bureaucracy doesn't care about you...only that it's rules be applied to EVERYONE...except politicians.  Even Hillary Clinton has said she wouldn't take the "pat down" fondling...but then as one of out "political elite" she wouldn't have to.  But as Glenn @ instapundit points out this is far from over!...

BTW Glenn, thanks for the post title...I couldn't help it.
