->You might have noticed that I never complain about politicians. I leave that to others. And there's no shortage of volunteers; everyone complains about politicians. Everyone says they suck. But where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky; they don't pass through a membrane from a separate reality. They come from American homes, American families, American schools, American churches, and American businesses. And they're elected by American voters. [[InherentInTheSystem This is what our system produces, folks. This is the best we can do. Let's face it, we have very little to work with. Garbage in, garbage out.]]

->Think about everything you hear about Washington in the news: The disingenuous, corrupt, racist white jerkoffs bankrupting the country. The gutless fucks who say that there's 'no simple solution' to people with AR-15s shooting up public places... but legislate [[HeteronormativeCrusader what gay people can order at Chipotle]]. The defense lobbyists and 'think tank' fucks who never grew out of [[GeneralFailure playing with toy soldiers]], who go home at the end of each day to their house in Reston and jack off thinking about [[WhiteMansBurden dropping bombs on brown people.]]\\\

->American elections are like ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. They start slow, then they get great, but then they get tedious and, while you know it still exists, [[GaveUpOnLogic you just don't care anymore]].

->No one beats up America better than Americans. They openly debate their inequality, conduct rigorous studies about it, argue about economics vs culture as causes. Their universities study it, with a calibre of analysis not found in Britain... And the debate is so fierce that the rest of the world looks on, and joins in lamenting America’s problems. A shame: we’d do better to get a little angrier at our own.
