Quotes of the day

Apparently in Obama's view, the more rich people there are, the worse the economy is doing.--James Taranto

Perhaps the McCains will adopt George [Hussein Onyango Obama].--Glenn Reynolds

The candidate of change went with the status quo.--Ron Fournier

I'd like to see you president instead of the guy we have now.--Joe Biden in 2004, to John McCain

We’re not saying the Democrats are unpatriotic or anything, but why do they need to have the Pledge of Allegiance on the Teleprompter?--Joe Garofalo

... the emergent order is like a pool, and the plans of businesses are like rocks tossed into the pool. They cause some disturbances, but the pool settles down in its own way. The plans of government may work similarly. We want to pretend that the government can transform the pool into any shape it chooses. In fact, it can only toss in rocks, just like anyone else.--Arnold Kling

What’s the function of a film of this kind? Essentially as a primer on love and marriage directed at very young people, imprinting on their little psyches the idea that smooth-talking delinquents recently escaped from the local pound are a good match for nice girls from sheltered homes. When in ten years the icky human version of Tramp shows up around the house, their hormones will be racing and no one will understand why. Films like this program women to adore jerks.--Whit Stillman
