Quote for the Day

"American politics at the moment is dominated by a succession of arcane, convoluted and arbitrary ceremonies performed by fakirs and zealots, fervently intoning the catechisms of long-dead sages, apparently unconcerned that they are bringing the real tasks of government to a disastrous standstill. Perhaps "banana republic" isn't the right phrase; "decadent empire" might be better. But either way, a trillion-dollar coin doesn't seem like it would have added much to the indignity." --Matt Steinglass.
