  •  Telling a public official what to do and say (6+ / 0-)

    is merely a function that public officials are, collectively, our employees.

    Bender's statement is simply bizarrely amnesiac, but it's not unique.

    For example, a while back, it was claimed on DKos (I can't remember by whom) that the phrase "public servant" was racist when applied to Obama, because it evoked slavery, and the person claiming this also claimed to have never heard the phrase "public servant" before. Seriously?
