Quote of the Day

From Teddy Roosevelt, surely one of our most dickish presidents:

“I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of ten are, and shouldn’t like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth.”

(I’ll never understand the cult of TR. Except that he was, before W and the fighterpilot bulge, the president whose desperate anxiety to prove his masculinity most bordered on the pathological. Probably why the Neo-cons are such big fans…)
