"The lesser sons of greater fathers." My God, my God, how devastatingly appropriate. Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and yes, a lot of Republican leaders too; can you imagine their roles in 1776? They would have been sweeping out the stables where Washington, Madison and Jefferson kept their horses.

...and a bunch of 'em woulda been fired for shoddy performance!

The cannibal subcurrent is one I have long thought (without the awesome name). The heroics not just of 1776 but the hundreds who gave their lives to build the Brooklyn Bridge and Panama Canal (have I ever mentioned David McCullough's "Brave Companions?" I didn't think so...) These people lead heroic lives and we can't risk killing a turtle or paying our own goddam doctor bills.
