Adding to My List of “Wish-I’d-Said Its”

Reading a blog by Paul Krugman of the New York Times yesterday, I came across an absolutely wonderful description of a right-wing ideologue. It was applied to Dick Armey, the former Republican congressman from Texas and, at the time, majority leader in the House. Armey was, and still is, remembered for boorish behavior.

At any rate, Armey was once described by Ezra Klein, columnist and blogger for the Washington Post, as “ … a stupid person’s idea of what a thoughtful person sounds like.”

Damn! Why can’t I come up with stuff like that?
