Quote of the week
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.Posted at 10:19 AM to QOTW
