quote of the day

"For me, the strangest and most off-putting element of the [Glenn Beck event] was the disjuncture between the anti-authority dimension of the rally - our leaders have disappointed us and must be called to account! - and the whole-hog deference to militarism - we need to thank our soldiers for following orders so honorably and self-sacrificingly. While there were plenty of wounded soldiers on the stage, there was absolutely zero discussion of why these guys were being sent overseas and whether we should expect the same politicians who lie to us on domestic policy to be any better on foreign policy." -Nick Gillespie
