Comments: As Tolstoy Said, All Violent Morons Are Alike

Ah, to be killed softly by her many kisses, rather than like that young revolutionary fool I had for a client back in the exhuberant 60s, who, in the process of flinging a small molotov cocktail - all while driving his car- at a downtown store which was known for paying its hirelings little more than the minimum and other abuses, forgot to lower the passenger's side window, and succeeded in blowing himself up a bit. Serious burns, an amputated finger or two, and an understanding prosecutor who agreed to two years probation. Lucky lad, lack of panache and all - or maybe a surfeit of panache?

this reminds me(as many things do) of a family guy bit

Brian: did you stay up all night writing that joke?
Peter: oh no, turned in at around 2 AM

A raise a glass of my Friday night wine to you!

Sadly and with a sense of ironic tragedy... but, nevertheless: salude.

Morons win because they practice so much.

Perhaps its not so much practice as they don't have as much to memorize, you know? if they've only got one move, ie "[Person I don't like] is a [foreign entity i don't like]!!!" Haw haw haw! Indeedy!", then they can nail it down a lot sooner. That and they have to remember how to spell "appeasement". Pretty easy if you think about it.
