  •  Humpty Dumpty in Through the Looking Glass (6+ / 0-)

    Humpty Dumpty is talking to Alice and concludes an argument by saying "there's glory for you."  

    `I don't know what you mean by "glory",' Alice said.

    Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. `Of course you don't -- till I tell you. I meant "there's a nice knock-down argument for you!"'

    `But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument",' Alice objected.

    `When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'

    `The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

    `The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master -- that's all.'

    Pretty clearly, Republicans intend to "be master."

      I guess I confused that line with one of the Queens' great remark, "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards."

      I could have been a soldier... I had got part of it learned; I knew more about retreating than the man that invented retreating. --Mark Twain
