Quote Of The Day

James Ala, at Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Oscar, for this gem describing the upcoming Presidential election:
Peel back the petty theatrics and the General still looks the same: two fundamentally weak and compromised candidates who talk past the very public that they are supposed to represent. The president is one of those fundamentally weak and compromised candidates. On the Republican side the choice appears to be the fundamentally weak Romney or the disastrously weak Gingrich or Santorum. This is the best a billion dollar campaign can achieve. That is the state of play; pretty damn pathetic, don’t you think?

On the plus side, it will employ lots of otherwise useless people.

Answering the question of whether it's better than digging holes and filling them up again would be an interesting exercise in the economics of the absurd...

By the time November rolls around, the U.S. will be nothing but gibbering insanity, brought on by several billions worth of marketing. This expat is about to close down staying informed until the madness is over. Not an acceptable candidate for any public office on the horizon. The country would be wise by not returning any incumbent officeholder to any office for any reason, but that isn't about to happen.

All I can say is, thank the gods of technology for my DVR. I can fast forward through all the annoying nonsense. I almost never watch live TV anymore.
