"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Congratulations you poor fools who elected Ted Cruz....

Since I have to pick up the slack, let me do it with humor:

Doncha feel better now?

Especially since Ted Cruz can't resist WWII metaphors.  He was implicitly Churchill against the Neville Chamberlain appeasers because Obamacare is like...."Hitler health-care exchanges?"  Like Jon Stewart, I lost the thread of that metaphor.

And I don't even want to know what this one is about:

Cruz ended his failibuster by thanking the Senate staff for having “endured this Bataan death march,”
 I guess it's okay since most of the survivors of the Bataan death march are now safely dead, and so don't mind their horror being used to make light of 20 hours of pointless blather in an air conditioned room where people had to be because it is their job, which is kinda sorta somehow like being a prisoner of war.

Anyway, realize that if you never used such a gawdawful metaphor in your life, you've accomplished more than Ted Cruz.  Good job!
