On the Cusp of Worry

Jeff Schapiro tries to take away the Democratic punchbowl this morning, warning that electoral success can breed dissent.

Well of course it does.

Only now, with Democrats making gains and feeling their oats, the feuds that were largely ignored in the press are becoming more the delight of anyone dependent upon a stead stream of good copy. We can only hope more of this always entertaining, flying elbow smash fun finds its way into the old-line media in the days ahead.

"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

"Don't pretend that you know me...cause I don't even know myself" -- The Who
