The Dull and Frivolous

From Samizdata:
"We are ruled by people who have achieved the remarkable distinction of being both dull and frivolous."

Theodore Dalrymple. The problem is the idea that we need "rulers" at all.

I think that my analogy might be better: We have elected a government of six year olds, given them a truck full of dynamite, and told them to build something.

The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in the stars . . . .

Oh, my dear Brutus, I would gladly trade you a truck full of dynamite for a teaspoon of self-awareness for Steve. It's as if he has been living on Mars these last eight years.
