Quote of the day

From Jim Bovard:

Credo for the New American Patriotism I believe: That politicians are more honest than they seem; That government is more competent than it appears; That government is benevolent, regardless of how much it wastes or how many people it harms; That citizens must trust the government, regardless of how often it lies; That democracy is a panacea, regardless of how often it fails; That freedom is whatever the president says it is, pending revision.

Awesome. Can't wait to read his forthcoming book, Attention Deficit Democracy.
