Digging deep

Holy cow, Boehner found something, possibly either a spine or a brain.

"Are you really going to ask such a stupid question?" he said at a news conference as a reporter started to ask about Democratic complaints that the government shortchanges the railroad.

It's only 21 years of this nonsense from the Clintons, and John's finally figured it out. Probably won't hear it from him again before he's chased out of the House.

Say, speaking of 21 years of the Clintons, whatever happened to Steffi Stephanopolous.

How is the question stupid - because it makes him look worse?

It's stupid because all the evidence shows that Amtrak had the financial capacity to install safety devices to slow trains down - they were installed on the southbound tracks. The evidence shows the engineer was well paid, happy in his job, and at least as of now, does not appear to have been a security breach.

I wonder if a reporter will ever ask the question if government or quasi-government entities are ill suited to operate high tech businesses, due to bureaucratic inefficiency and incompetence. No one has shown that throwing more money at Amtrak would make it safer or less less tardy. In fact

You're missing the point. The more inefficient the government agency, the better, since that requires more money be spent to fix the problem, and if you disagree you're in favor of people dying.

That, indeed, is the point.
