Dick Armey, former House majority leader, wrote an interesting op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal of Thursday, 9 November, 2006. I gather that he and many of us are pleased that now, finally, we will be blessed with good and capable government leaders. And of course that Michael J Fox will finally be cured of his Parkinson’s Disease. Perhaps Christopher Reeves will rise up and walk again too.
A pull quote from the middle of his article captured my attention: “I’ve always wondered why Republicans insist on acting like Democrats in hopes of retaining political power, while Democrats act like us to win.” (emphasis on “retaining” and “win” in the original)
