Quote(s) of the Day
From Billy Beck:
At the moment, I have two general things to say:
1) That was the capstone of twentieth century American politics. That catastrophe is complete now.
2) It was the most profoundly foolish thing that American voters have ever done. As a matter of justice, it might be interesting to see how many of them discover this fact in the next four or eight years. It won’t make any difference, however, to the price that comes with the lesson. This event will hobble Americans for whole generations. It is very much an open question to me whether anyone will learn anything in the wake of this. I am very much afraid that that capacity is on its way completely out of American civil life. I’m not kidding.
All bets are off.
