Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Al Gore, Comedian

Over the weekend I was re-reading Al Gore's Earth in the Balance (don't ask), and I came across this passage from Al's fine pen:

In public policy, the trick is to mix intelligence with money; a higher ratio of intelligence is usually efficient and preferable, but all too often the entire apparatus comes to a halt when the mixture is too lean in money.  The real challenge now is to improve our understanding of policy enough to sustain a higher ratio of intelligence to money.

Now that's some of the best comedy writing I've seen in a long time.

I would expect such a critique from a guy whose intelligence is paid for by Exxon Mobile.
