    I had to look outside to make sure the sky wasn’t falling and the world not ending. Jan Brewer just said something intelligent.

    @michael reynolds: I had the same thought. When Jan Flippin’ Brewer is your voice of reason, you’ve got a problem.

    Mike and James – Don’t go ascribing human-level intelligence to your opponents. Next thing you know, you’ll start thinking of them as near-equals, and have to consider their opinions on other things.

    You might have to admit the other side might have some points.
