Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Bourne Idiocy

Here's Matt Damon, political scientist:“You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better.”

Yes, Obama got nothing done.  Unless you count universal health care, ending the Iraq War, the new START treaty, ending DADT, saving GM and Chrysler, the Lily Ledbetter Act, the hate crimes bill, Dodd-Frank, the end of the Gaddafi regime and, oh, yeah, he ordered bin Laden shot in the face.

I've always thought Matt Damon was an excellent actor because of his intelligence.

I never realized what a steep curve actors need to be graded on.
