Reid: We won’t smell the tourists anymore

On occasion, I have the opportunity to use the word “arrogance” in reference to something political.  In many cases, the word “arrogance” really is the most appropriate to use when I describe how a government acts with reckless disregard for the will of the people.  Or, when a politician claims to know how to take care of your business better than you do.  Or, when redistributionists clamor for more of your money to pay for yet another government handout.  Today, I thought I’d look up “arrogance” in the dictionary, just to make sure I’ve been using it correctly.  And here’s what I found:

Harry Reid

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Speaking of arrogance, here’s what Majority Leader Reid had to say at the grand opening of the Capitol Visitors Center:

“My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway,” said Reid in his remarks. “In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”

And, from Merriam-Webster:

Arrogance:  an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions.
