It's not a rational's a goddamned cult

Atrios is absolutely dead-on in describing the UK's Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne thusly:
The "deep-rooted problems" are the policies of the government and the fact that the chancellor is the stupidest fucking person on the face of the planet.
And here is the evidence:
George Osborne insisted the government was on the right economic path, despite "disappointing" official figures released on Wednesday that showed Britain is enduring the longest double-dip recession for more than 50 years. The chancellor came under increasing pressure to lay out a plan B for the economy after shock figures from the Office of National Statistics revealed the economy shrank by a worse-than-expected 0.7% between April and June. Gross domestic product (GDP) — a broad measure for the economy — fell for the third quarter in a row and by much more than the 0.2% expected by forecasters. [ED: IT FELL 350% more, falling 0.7%]
And Mitt Romney is going over there to take money out of the giant bankers who are among the elite sucking the marrow from the bones of the poor and middle class. With any luck we'll see a manly hug between he and Osborne, because as stupid as Osborne is, he is totally Mitt's kind of guy -- so maybe the former is just the second dumbest?
