Default Great quote / PJ O'Rourke

Howz this for stirring the Pot.....??

From his book, " Give War a Chance"

- The second item in the liberal creed, after self-righteousness, is unaccountability...... Liberals have invented whole college majors-psychology, sociology, women's studies- to prove that nothing is anybody's fault...... No one is fond of taking responsibility for his actions, but consider how much you'd have to hate free will to come up with a political platform that advocates killing unborn babies but not convicted murderers...... A callous pragmatist might favor abortion and capital punishment.... A devout Christian would sanction neither.... But it takes years of therapy to arrive at the Liberal view.........

I tend not to pay any attention to anyone who makes statements like this:

There are a lot of mysterious things about boats, such as why anyone would get on one voluntarily.
O'Rourke, P.J. (1989), Holidays in hell. London (Picador), 151

or

Everything on a boat has a different name than it would have if it weren't on a boat. Either this is ancient seafaring tradition or it's how people who mess around with boats try to impress the rest of us who actually finished college.
O'Rourke, P.J. (1989), Holidays in hell. London (Picador), 149

"why anyone would get on one voluntarily"
Be honest, you've never felt this way after changing a water pump impeller?

"impress the rest of us"
Admit it, have you ever "word-dropped" terms like: deadrise, freeboard, or chine?

That's funny, that's exactly what I say a lot. Oh, except change the third word to LEFT.

Can't we all just get along?
I just want you all to know that I can laugh at humor from conservatives or liberals (if they had a sense of humor).
