Smoot's a Hoot

Posted By Don Boudreaux On July 15, 2007 @ 7:32 pm In Politics,Trade | Comments Disabled

My friend Randy Simmons (co-author of the outstanding public-choice primer, Beyond Politics [1]) draws my attention to this poem by Ogden Nash [2].  (After you click on the link, scroll down a bit until you find the second poem.)  It is Nash’s tribute to Sen. Smoot, of Smoot-Hawley fame.

Persons like Sen. Smoot — and Sen. Schumer — and Sen. Clinton — and Sens. Graham and Brown and Kennedy and Vitter and Boxer and Lott and McCain and you-name-the-office-holder — deserve such withering ridicule.  Such scorn is among the best ways to expose these arrogant busybodies for what they are.
