To hear Fox News host and author Greg Gutfeld tell it, Americans are quickly losing faith “in trust of big government,” but then again, if you ask me, I’d say it’s about time.
In a May 31 column posted over at Breitbart News, Gutfeld prefaced his observation thus:
You remember near the end of the Monty Python flick, The Meaning of Life – that scene featuring Mr. Creasote? He’s the morbidly obese freak who gorges on food, until finally, after eating a mint offered by the waiter, completely explodes, sending his guts in all directions.
I was a senior in high school when I saw it, and I remember it clearly. I skipped dinner that night.
And I remember the scene now, as I’ve watched this IRS scandal unfold. I keep thinking about that mint, and that this scandal is that mint.
So much bureaucracy, so many scandals
