"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Nixon Needs a Shave

I said, and then I noticed that everyone else was saying it too, that the debate last Wednesday was an "Emperor Has No Clothes" moment for Obama.   But maybe a better analogy is that it was his "Nixon Needs a Shave" moment.   I think we'll look back on last week and remember it as the most amazing U-turn in a Presidential election ever.
