    There are two types of republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.

      Excellent pick! Is it still out of print? I got an early edition paperback from a crackhead at a book stall 20 years ago but didn't reread it at time because it was in such great condition.

      If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.
