US President hopeful Sarah Palin in Iowa...
"Things must change for our government. Look at it. It isn’t too big to fail. It’s too big to succeed! It's too big to succeed, so we can afford no retreads or nothing will change with the same people and same policies that got us into the status quo. Another Latin word, status quo, and it stands for, ‘Man, the middle-class everyday Americans are really gettin’ taken for a ride.’ That's status quo, and GOP leaders, by the way, y'know the man can only ride ya when your back is bent. So strengthen it. Then the man can't ride ya, America won't be taken for a ride, because so much is at stake and we can't afford politicians playing games like nothing more is at stake than, oh, maybe just the next standing of theirs in the next election."
"Really, it's kind of Orwellian, observing how that works, that rule of Saul Alinsky's, no doubt, that the left employs. Disgusting charges, from the left. Reverse them -- for it is they who point a finger not realizing that they have triple that amount of fingers pointing right back at them, revealing that they are the ones who really discriminate and divide on color and class and sex. We call them out. We don’t let them get away with it.”
In response to the speech, Democratic National Committee communications director Mo Elleithee issued a two-word statement: “Thank you!” Moggy

This quote popped up on Facebook this morning: "One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors" - Plato. It seems that nothing much has changed in 2300 odd years....

That is very true. Why do all politicians seem think the electorate are too thick to realise they're being used?

Presumably Russell Brand has never googled Plato? Mind you, it's hard to imagine what Brand's inferiors would look like. Moggy
