Quote(s) Of The Day:

Mark Steyn can get a little "Markie One-Note" about the failure of yuppie wombs to counter the fecundity of the Muslim Peril, but that takes nothing away from the fact that he's just brilliant; a veritable self-propelled, organic "Quote of the Day" machine.

From a book review at The New Criterion:
The all-pervasive micro-regulatory state “enervates,” but nicely, gradually, so after a while you don’t even notice. And in exchange for liberty it offers security: the “right” to health care; the “right” to housing; the “right” to a job—although who needs that once you’ve got all the others?
From an Orange County Register column on the Dear Leader's latest forelock-tugging Apology '09 world tour:
Like General Motors, the U.S. government spends more than it makes, and has airily committed itself to ever more unsustainable levels of benefits. GM has about 95,000 workers but provides health benefits to a million people: It's not a business enterprise, but a vast welfare plan with a tiny loss-making commercial sector. As GM goes, so goes America?
As always, RTWT. (Er, both whole things.)

Mark Steyn is absolutely brilliant. Gotta latch onto some of his books one of these days.

I wouldn't be surprised if his presidency is summated in the history books with simply the photo of he bowing to whatever oil-rich goatherder that was.

History will come to label Bambi as 'President Reacharound'.

I wish the world would hurry up and end. There are few things more annoying than a prolonged whimper.
