Ironic Quote of the Day

On his website, billionaire George Soros shares his wisdom the day after George Bush’s re-election:

Obviously, I am distressed at the outcome of the election. I hope, but don't trust, that the second Bush administration will have learned something from the mistakes of the first. What is at stake is our ability to recognize our own fallibility.

Hmmm . . . let’s run the numbers here.

One of these Georges just got 59 million votes and won the presidency of the United States. The other George just spent 24 million dollars on hate advertising and lost his money and his credibility as a serious political influence.

This is what’s called a “teachable moment” for one the Georges in question.

One of them, I hope, has learned something from his experience. Take your time. At stake is your ability to recognize your own fallibility.
