Warning, liberals: humor inside
I don’t really think DB has ever actually read P.J. O’ Rourke – PJ’s funny, and his books aren’t illustrated – but somehow DB heard of one of his quotes:
PJ O’Rourke had it right when he wrote: “The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then they get elected and prove it.”
And he’s a conservative!
And that’s funny, DB, really – trust me on this. But the full quote, you little selective editor, you, is: ” The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then they get elected and prove it.”

The mystery of government is not how Washington works but how to make it stop.
There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.
