The assertion that people protesting White House policies are paid agitators would be amusing if it were not ludicrous and insulting. Someone is paying us to cleanse and breathe life back into our own democracy? Who would that be exactly?

And if we were being paid, would women then, in keeping with tradition, be underpaid? And will we all get tax forms next year indicating just how much we are being paid to carry out our responsibilities as citizens? And will we, like the guy the Electoral College tells us is the president, be able to hide financial records, including tax returns, from each other and the public?

And will we, like that same guy, be able to declare bankruptcy multiple times and call it good fiscal management and wise business sense? The possibilities are mind-boggling. With luck, eventually, our citizenry will see through these wrong-headed ideas.
