Two Quotes of the Day

by Stephen Gordon

Sometime one has to get up early to get the quote-of-the-day post on this site.  Not being a morning person, I simply waited until after midnight.  Blogging is more fun while sucking down a beer than drinking the first cup of morning coffee, anyway.  Since I rarely provide the QOTD here, I thought it was time for twofers.

While at the Birmingham Tea Party, quite a few Republicans thanked me for my role in bringing the Department of Homeland Security document to the light of day.  One was even shedding real tears of gratitude.  Every since the report was released, I’ve been amazed by the amount of site traffic and major media attention this issue has received.  And also very, very confused.

Thoreau, via Mark Thompson, explains my confusion very well:

WE FVCKING TOLD YOU SO!!!!!  WE TOLD YOU THIS EVERY G*DD@MN DAY FOR 8 G*DD@MN YEARS!!!!!

He adds:

Anyway, I, for one, welcome my new rightwing fellow travelers.  All I ask is that they try to remember that a red boot can stomp on a human face as much as a blue boot.

He expressed my feelings so well that I’m at a loss for words.  And that’s a very difficult accomplishment, indeed.
