Quote Of The Day: Children Who Want To Grow Up To Be Charisma Free Democratic Senators Who Lie About Social Security

My absolute favorite part of the insomnia curing and mostly pointless Democratic response[1] to W’s superb State of the Union Speech was when Harry Reid said,

“A few weeks ago, I joined some friends of mine for a bite to eat at The Nugget – Searchlight’s only restaurant. We were sitting down in a booth, when a young boy, about 10-years-old, named Devon walked up to us.

Carrying a skateboard under his arm, he said, “Senator Reid, when I grow up I want to be just like you.”

Well, the truth is Devon could probably do a lot better. But the point still holds and it is this: no one ever had to tell young Devon to dream big dreams, no one ever had to teach him that America is a place of possibility.”

Way to aim high, kid! If you work really hard — come from a wealthy family, marry a rich widow, or amass a fortune as a trial lawyer — and are willing to lie day in and day out about what kind of shape Social Security is in, you too can be the chief obstructionist in a political party that’s slowly circling the drain in the bathtub of America’s body politic!
