Bill Moyers on America

I'm reading Moyers on America and (having some acquaintence with the alleged misdeeds of Majority Leader Tom Delay of Texas) I savored a particularly pungent description of practical politics in America:

I should make it clear that I don't harbor any idealized notion of politics and democracy; after all, I worked for Lyndon Johnson. Nor do I romanticize "the people." You should read my mail or listen to the vitriol virtually spat at my answering machine. I understand what the politician meant who said of the Texas House of Representatives, "If you think these guys are bad, you should see their constituents."

P.S. To all of you wished Miss Julie and me well on our wedding day this past weekend, thank you.
