the state be with you

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 31, 2007

A trenchant observation by James Taranto.

The Concord (N.H.) Monitor reports on a hilarious pronouncement from the lovely and talented John Edwards:

Like other Democrats, Edwards named his top three priorities as ending the war in Iraq, enacting universal health care and overhauling the American energy system. "Those are three things instantly I would do," he said.

Instantly! Gosh, what's he going to do on Jan. 21? It's so cute the way Democrats complain that the president has too much power, but then imagine they would be omnipotent if elected.

Taranto's on target regarding Edwards, but regrettably this notion of government -- an Olympus from which divinities direct the lives of mortals -- is not limited to the Democratic Party. Modern politicians are always trying to create some paradisal future that they can lead us into.
