The Thing About Politics

I was going to quote from the great Jimmy Stewart film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington to illustrate how I felt about yesterday's elections and about politics in general.  But I decided to quote from another Jimmy Stewart movie instead: Harvey.  If you've never seen it, do so.  It's full of wisdom.  Here's the quote:

"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me."

Think about it.

You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
