"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

New Hampshire

Romney: I will give you austerity and war and you will thank me for my lily white face and my squeaky shoe Mormonism.

Obama, from the White House shadows: Yeah, but I'll give you austerity and war and someone to blame for it.

Goldman Sachs: Meh. It's all good for us.

I think "Goldman Sachs" works as an identifier as well as "Hollywood," but point well taken Thunder.

In lieu of watching this vacuous miniseries, I hope you all are spending your time more fruitfully doing the important things like clipping your toenails or picking lint out of your belly buttons.
