Why Do Intelligent People Become Brain Dead In Office?

There is something about selecting a supposedly intelligent person to serve in the American government which elicits within their brain cells some rather hectic activity resulting in a form of brain paralysis. Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is a former governor who was considered to be rather good, but since she has entered the Cabinet something has happened to her brain. Farouk Abdulmutallab went through security measures, got on a plane and sat in his seat. Finally, as the plane approached its destination he tried activating a bomb which was linked to his underwear. According to Ms. Napolitano, “the important thing we have to recognize” is that “everything happened that should have. So the system worked really very smoothly over the course of the past several days.”

I get it. When I purchase an airline ticket, I become some sort of federal marshall and when someone tries to blow up the plane I take off my shirt, reveal my Federal marshall tee shirt, and swing into action subduing the potential bomber. Is Ms. Napolitano really that brain dead to utter such nonsense.

Oh, Ms. Director, your boss, President Obama said there was a “systematic failure.” Of course, since he is the president why not appoint him to be one of those undercover federal agents who protect passengers!!
