P.J. O’Rourke, political satirist/journalist, died yesterday at the age of 74.
From O’Rourke’s Parliament of Whores (1991):
Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. . . . Democrats are . . . the party of government activism, the party that says government can make you richer, smarter, taller and get the chickweed out of your lawn.
Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work, and then they get elected and prove it.
