"Either I'm dead right, or I'm crazy."

I watched Mr. Smith Goes to Washington all the way through for the first time last night.

If we selected Congress by picking people at random, do you think that would make the government worse, or better?
Boys forget what their country means, just reading "land of the free" in history books. And they get to be men and forget even more. Liberty is too precious to get buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men ought to hold it up in front of them every day of their lives and say: "I am free, to think, to speak. My ancestors couldn't. I can. My children will."

Thats how we got Sarah Palin so close to the White House, so I think you are crazy

For the record, "dead right or I'm crazy" is a line from the movie, not an assessment of my options.

And the Palin pick was anything but random.

By random I mean the fact that she could actually be elected to any office that is not a small town mayor. And I still think you are crazy...
