Suicidal glory is the luxury of the irresponsible.
We're not giving up. We're waiting for a better opportunity to win.

 
" I don't think I've ever met a Liberal whom I didn't like on a personal basis. That said, if your goal is to change minds and influence people, it's probably not a good idea to begin by asserting that virtually all elected Democrats are liars. But what the hell."

Spankings, and lots of them
My grampa, Gen. R. Bueregard Schultz, USA
"Then find someone else, I will not surrender to a woman."

All the "Best Notable Quotables"  are funny,  more so when you consider that the nominees will scratch their heads, wondering,  "what was wrong with that?"  It's why they are in disrepute.  I picked this for a reason though.
"God Save This Court from Extremists" Award

"An Advocate for the Right."

— Headline over a New York Times "news analysis" of Judge John Roberts’ judicial philosophy, July 28.

vs.

"Balanced Jurist at Home in the Middle."

— Headline over a June 27, 1993 New York Times story on Supreme Court nominee Ruth Bader Ginsburg. [78 points]

Runners-up:

"When John G. Roberts Jr. prepared to ghostwrite an article for President Ronald Reagan a little over two decades ago, his pen took a Civil War re-enactment detour....The Indiana native scratched out the words ‘Civil War’ and replaced them with ‘War Between the States.’...Sam McSeveney, a history professor emeritus at Vanderbilt University who specialized in the Civil War, said that Roberts’s choice of words was significant. ‘Many people who are sympathetic to the Confederate position are more comfortable with the idea of a "War Between the States,"’ McSeveney explained. ‘People opposed to the civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s would undoubtedly be more comfortable with the words he chose.’"
Washington Post reporter Jo Becker, August 26. [58]

Professor McSeveney would stay after school and clean erasers in my classroom.  The 1861 Rebellion was most certainly not a civil war in the truest sense.  There were clear boundaries (state lines) separating belligerents, declarations of war, and each side wore distinctive uniforms.  While there were sympathizers in both camps, there were precious few instances of guerrilla warfare that is the hallmark of civil wars. You could walk down the street in Albany, or Nashville, with no fear of being shot by a sniper.

While it may be an arguable point, in a push, McSeveney's contention that Robert's use of the term was "significant," is in my opinion professorial poop.  I was schooled in Chicago where the term War Between the States was predominantly used in the elementary schools I attended.  And one more thing. There exists today no constitutional proscription against a state leaving the Union. Smack.
