Quote of the week

You want to run for President? Are you out of your cotton-picking fabric-creating mind?

Not only is there the burden of governing a superpower in an explosive world, but our manic media ensures that, if you’re a Republican candidate, you’ll be subject to routine, public colonoscopies, while if you’re a Democratic candidate, you receive the kind of fawning sycophancy that created the same delusions of grandeur that drove many European monarchs mad.

Any job description for the job of president in 2012 should end with the words “only megalomaniacs need apply.”

Had I written this, it might not be quite so pithy, but it also would not contain the qualifier “in 2012.”
