Hain't we got all the fools in town on our side? And hain't that a big enough majority in any town?
-- Mark Twain, "Huckleberry Finn"
The stupidity of the American people has been greatly exaggerated.
I SING what was lost and dread what was won, I walk in a battle fought over again, My king a lost king, and lost soldiers my men; Feet to the Rising and Setting may run, They always beat on the same small stone. -- William Butler Yeats
