Quote of the Week

"A party of great vested interests banded together in a formidable configuration: corruption at home, aggression to cover it up abroad, sentiment by the bucket-full, patriotism by the imperial pint, the open hand at the public exchequer, the open door at the public house, dear food for the millions, cheap labor for the millionaire."

Winston Churchill, speaking of the Tory Party of l904; quoted by Lewis Lapham, of Harper’s, speaking of the current Bush administration, in a speech available via the Lannan foundation. (HT: Salon’s Audiofile)
