Remember, when you hear about how important it is that the next Republican nominee for President have “gravitas,” the following have been designed by people with gravitas:
- The TSA’s scanning and groping system.
- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the mortgage bubble.
- Our tax code.
- Our federal and state budget deficits.
- Our immigration system.
- (feel free to add more in the comments)
We need gravitas, because gravitas has worked so well so far.
