Good Speech

I enjoyed Stacy McCain's Tea Party speech in Alabama. It was good to view him in animation after a rather long period of just reading his written words.

I especially liked his quote of Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., after missing his proper landing point on D-Day by a country mile. "We’ll start the war from here!"

It reminded me of a Gimli quote in 'Lord of the Rings', 'The Return of the King'. After a proposal to storm the gates of Mordor, Gimli states, "Certain death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?"

If Dwarves and Elves can set aside real differences for a common goal, so can the Conservatives. Still, all the while, they can continue to spat over in-house, family differences.
