Quote of the Evening

Politicians can’t sell power that they don’t have.

“Fearsome Tycoon”, from the comments thread here (via Instapundit). Probably an old libertarian saw that’s passed me by. Certainly the sentiment is hardly new, but I don’t recall seeing it put so succinctly before. Could make a few of the failure-of-capitalism mob stop and think, especially when dropped in that sort of context.

    They’re certainly giving it the old college try though.

    It is quite true. If someone wants to reduce corruption (corporate welfare and so on) is to reduce the size and scope of government.

    If someone wants to reduce corruption and cronyism that is what they must do – and if they are not prepared to do it, then their “anti corruption” stand is just a pose.
