Temper, Temper

The debate seems to have gotten heated while I was away. Ted Stevens had his own personal China Syndrome moment, threatening his colleauges before the vote on the Coburn amendment to defund the "Bridge to Nowhere" with: "if this passes, I'll resign from this body."

We can only hope. But if the Senate is as craven as I think it is, Ted will be able to remain in the Senate cloister for the rest of his days.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
