Post-Election Reflections

With the election over and much talk going on about what's gonna happen in Washington, I think it's time to bring back an old piece on P.J. O'Rourke on Government.

My favorite quote:

The American political system is like a gigantic Mexican Christmas fiesta. Each political party is a huge pinata - a paper mache donkey, for example. The donkey is filled with full employment, low interest rates, affordable housing, comprehensive medical benefits, a balanced budget, and other goodies. The American voter is blindfolded and given a stick. The voter then swings the stick wildly in every direction, trying to hit a political candidate on the head and knock some sense into the silly bastard.
