I'm betting he flunked Social Studies

Last night on Wolf Blitzer, the new head of the Republican Party, Michael Steele was showing off his intellectual firepower:
Not in the history of mankind has the government ever created a job.

Wow. So Mr. Steele believes the all-volunteer military is made up unpaid volunteers. He apparently believes that civil service that Republicans like to demonize as "the bureaucracy" (cue sinister music) is made up of actual demons instead of citizens receiving paychecks. He must believe that all of those government buildings just appeared overnight instead of being built by construction workers who receive paychecks. Roads and bridges? Natural features of this great land of ours. With this kind of an incisive mind leading the renewal of the party of Hoover, we Democrats need to be very afraid.
