The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Quote of the week

Reporting for Got Detroit?, it's Princess E.M.:

We as Americans do not like our politicians particularly independent, clear thinking, principled, thought provoking, or even smart. We prefer them a lot like we prefer, say, our remote controls, television sets, toasters and computers — dumber than we are, and easily controlled.

This perhaps explains my ongoing antipathy for Ernest Istook, who isn't notably controllable.
