Quote of the Day

from the Baltimore Sun via Left I On the News:

It is time to hold them accountable - this ugly, troglodyte crowd of Capital Beltway insiders, rich lawyers, ideologues, incompetents and their strap-hangers should be tarred, feathered and ridden gracefully and mindfully out of Washington and returned to their caves, clubs in hand.
  • Gordon Adams, senior White House budget official for national security in the Clinton administration, writing for the Baltimore Sun.

And some great cartoons also, particularly Slowpoke. Again, black humor, but what other type has any effect at this point?

Also (can you tell I've been reading Left I today), I read this story prior to reading Eli's post. This story, in a British paper no less, is bad enough-saying that child mortality rates in the US are around those of Malaysia, that whites are now twice as likely to have health insurance in the US, and that 20% of children in the US live in poverty, but Eli, in his post notes that while the Times and WaPo report that the UN criticizes the US for its stinginess in foreign aid, neither of them even mention the shortcomings of the US healthcare system as mentioned above. Disgraceful.
