Quote of the Day: Congress Edition (Updated)
The quote of the day comes from an interview with David Kilcullen, an Australian anthropologist and advisor to Gen. Petraeus:
Our biggest problem during the surge was a hostile American Congress.
Couldn’t that be said of the financial crisis as well?
It reminds me of Sam Clemens’s quip:
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
