Friday Quote & Bear Blogging

This week’s quote is from Baby Doll, with Eli Wallach and Karl Malden:

What I’ve done is staked out a lot in Hell. A lot with a rotten house on it and five complete sets of furniture not paid for.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s bears…

So happy!

Friday Quote & Hedgehog Blogging

This week’s quote is from Night Of The Generals, starring Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif:

Filthy pig! Last week he offered me an unwashed glass. Now he enters my sight as if he just exhumed his grandmother with his bare hands!

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s hedgehogs…

It is a little-known fact that the hedgehog is a ferocious predator.

Friday Quote & Wombat Blogging

This week’s quote is from the great all-talking-all-the-time My Dinner With Andre:

I was still in a very peculiar state at that time, Wally. You know, I would look in the rear-view mirror of my car and see little birds flying out of my mouth.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s wombats…

Fingers Crossed, But…

While it is certainly encouraging to think that the South is a ticking demographic timebomb poised to blow up the Republican Party once and for all, I would be a lot more excited if the Democrats had not shown themselves to be ready, willing and able to fill the political void that remained.  Much as I like the idea of the GOP relegated to the role of a crazy ineffectual fringe party, it’s not as exciting if the newly dominant Democrats are indistinguishable from, if not actually to the right of, the pre-crazy Republicans.

Maybe it’s an instinctual compulsion to maintain a constant ideological distance from their opponents that causes the Democrats to move rightward at the same pace as the Republicans, or maybe they’re just completely corrupt and cynical, and the most conservative positions they can get away with move to the right as the GOP does.

If the Democrats destroy the Republicans only to become them, it will be a Pyrrhic victory at best, as America will rapidly follow the GOP down the drain.

This is a thing that happened.  Several times, actually.
