In Good Company

Here's some real classic quotes:
"The President is nothing more than a well-meaning baboon... I went to the White House directly after tea where I found "the original Gorilla" about as intelligent as ever."

"Filthy Story-Teller, Despot, Liar, Thief, Braggart, Buffoon, Usurper, Monster... Old Scoundrel, Perjurer, Robber, Swindler, Tyrant, Field-Butcher, Land-Pirate."
And now... the rest of the story, as if you didn't see it coming or know already. These quotes are not about our current President George W. Bush, they are about another Republican Liar-in-Chief, Abraham Lincoln. First from General McClellan, the second Harper's Weekly.

I sometimes get discouraged when G.W. doesn't get out and defend more directly the positions we support him for. But when I think about it historically, I really start to love that he doesn't get all amped up about every sorry moron that calls him Hitler. Those people matter nothing in the grand scheme of things, and you can't change their minds anyway, they are determined to see every glass as half-empty.

The really nice realization is that negative do-nothing reactionaries like our current Democrats will always be around, they will always be negative, and they will always mean nothing.
