Pg 21 of The Magician's Nephew by C.S. LewisNo, Digory. Men like me, who possess hidden wisdom, are freed from common rules just as we are cut off from common pleasures. Ours, my boy, is a high and lonely destiny.
--Andrew, Digory's uncle
To be fair to far right Republicans everywhere, Bush is one of the most inarticulate of the lot that I've ever met. So it isn't fair to judge the far right by their former leader.
It's been speculated that Bush actually has some sort of cognitive illness going on that has increasingly impeded his speech. If you look at clips of him from before the Presidency, he was not nearly so poor a speaker, though he was never really great. If he is reported one day to have some illness, then I will feel bad that I made fun of him, but I will not feel bad that I think he was a lousy President.
Hey Salty, the fact is that you and I have no say in who becomes president. Did we really have any idea who Bush, Clinton, or Obama were before they ran for election? They keep playing the excuse card on us, and you and I will never know who we are voting for.The fool had no rank. It could be played on any suit, allowing a player to save a more valuable triumph card for later play: in France it was called the excuse. Once the fool was played, the next player could play any suit and that suit determined the trick. After the trick, the player who had the fool could exchange it for any card in his or her hand, so it could be played more than once: it had no rank, but lots of power!
If you think we are worked by strings,
Like a Japanese marionette,
You don't understand these things:
It is simply Court etiquette.
Yes the far right are everywhere...and if we want stupid quotes we could take them right off their signs or out of their mouths at health care town meetings...To be fair to far right Republicans everywhere, Bush is one of the most inarticulate of the lot that I've ever met. So it isn't fair to judge the far right by their former leader.
