Quotes of the day

Big Steve manages to pull off two of them in a single post about credit-claiming in the US for democracy in Egypt:

The Bush folks are taking credit, saying that Iraq set the stage.  Um, just like an arsonist might take credit for new development after he burned down a city block, I guess.

And quote #2:

The big difference between the Bush-style and the Clinton/Obama style [of democracy promotion] is that the former requires invasion and poor planning, whereas the latter involves diplomacy, public and private pressure, and some patience

The whole post is brief and good stuff.
