Quote of the Day

From FrumForum, Napoleon Linerdatos with the quote of the day:

“I want my government limited but in no way would I like its managers to be average at all.”

The nomination of Christine O’Donnell is frightening to many not because she’s further to the right than Rep. Castle.  Nor is it frightening because she has some radical views on sexual morality.  It is fairly terrifying because it is symptomatic of a growing trend in the Tea Party movement to reject technocrats and wonks in favor of the everyman.  Public policy is not easy, even if you favor a limited government.  Why would you want people in charge that can’t even handle an unscripted interview?
