A thought for the day prior to Obama's inauguration

"[M]any people who voted for "Change" are instead getting a slicked up version of the status quo. That's likely to lead to some disappointment--a potentially productive disappointment. The sense of possibility tht Barack Obama has awakened is a very dangerous thing.

Toqueville [said] that the riskiest time for a bad regime is when it starts to reform itself. That's where our regime is right now, and it's a good time for us, whoever we are exactly, to go out and make it riskier. It's going to get easier to win recruits as the ranks of the disappointed swell."
