this one is from frequent commentor "Chuck" over at Last Chance Democracy Cafe. His comments on the Rumsfeld speech have been excellent all along but today, he outdid himself.
“The Question I find intriguing is whether a nation so extrodinarily endowed as the United States can overcome that arroggance of power which has afflicted, weakened and, in some cases, destroyed great nations in the past. Power tends to confuse itself with virtue and a great nation is peculiarly susceptible to the idea that its power is the sign of God’s favor, conferring upon it a special resposibility for other nations–to make them richer and happier and wiser, to remake them, that is, in its own shinning image.”J. William Fulbright, 1966
Damn! Liberals are soooooooo smart!
