The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Some Thoughts for Day 2 While Waiting for Jimmy Carter’s Second Term

 

While we wait to see if Barack will call more conserative voices like Rham Emanuel to help him enjoy these quotes from P. J. O’Rourke one of my favorite writers. If you have never read “Parliment of Whores” go to Amazon and order it today.

I’ll be done crying in my non-alcoholic beer by tomorrow and put up a new post for you then.

 

Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy, the whores are us.

 

When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.

 

America wasn’t founded so that we could all be better. America was founded so we could all be anything we damned well pleased.

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

P. J. O’Rourke
