Physics EnvyOctober 22, 2014
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Where could you find more quacks and charlatans than in the present administration of the United States.
Today the embarrassing White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, was confronted by CBS News correspondent Mark Knoller about the The Most Transparent Administration In History’s lack of transparency when it comes to President Obama’s fundraisers. First, it is noteworthy that anybody from CBS would confront the White House about anything.
Knoller asked “Why doesn’t that transparency extend to the Q&A sessions with the donors which would be a great interest to all of us?”
“…The goal of those Q&A sessions is to foster a more candid and open dialog where you have donors who are expressing their views, and, uh, the nature of…The Heisenberg principle. That’s the fact of someone observing something necessarily changes what is actually being observed. And I think that’s at play in a dynamic like this when you have a relatively small group of individuals who are seeking to have a conversation with the president of the United States.”
Josh, you are a smooth talking political hack, not a physicist. I know you think bringing up Heisenberg in this context makes you sound smart. And it probably does – to the empty-headed dolts that are still hypnotized by the administration’s claptrap. But to anybody who knows what they are talking about, you just sound pretentious.
This is a classic case of Physics Envy.
