I talked to Mohammad at the Freedomworks offices in DC.

Because nothing says tea party anti black, anti immigrant and anti-islamic hatred like a black Black Man from Sierra Leone at the office.

What do I like best about the Anchoress’ post about C. S. Lewis and C. K. Chesterton? It give me an excuse to repeat my favorite quote of all time!

It’s from Chancellor Kent when asked if he would sign a temperance pledge:

“Gentlemen, I refuse to sign any pledge. I never have been drunk, and, by the blessing of God, I never will get drunk, but I have a constitutional privilege to get drunk, and that privilege I will not sign away.”

How can you not love a quote like that? The instinct to overprotect to the point of oppression is anathema to the whole idea of America.
