The Edge… there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

This is the horror of American politics today—not that Richard Nixon and his fixers have been crippled, convicted, indicted, disgraced and even jailed—but that the only available alternatives are not much better; the same dim collection of burned-out hacks who have been fouling the air with gibberish for the last twenty years.
