Quote Of The Day

by Doug Mataconis

The late Charlton Heston, back in 1987:

It has under every administration, I guess, in the history of the Republic — certainly in this century. And despite all the protestations and brave assertions that if I’m elected we will cut big government, which has been included in the platforms of most men who ran for the presidency in the last 30 or 40 years, it doesn’t stop.
