Quote of the week

Shamelessly nicked from the Adam Smith Institute‘s blog.

The problem is not really politicians. The problem is politics. Politicians are chefs – some good, some bad – but politics is road kill. The problem isn’t the cook. The problem is the cookbook. The key ingredient of politics is the idea that all of society’s ills can be cured politically. It’s like a cookbook where the recipe for everything is to fry it. The fruit cocktail is fried. The soup is fried. So is the ice cream and cake. And your pinot noir is rolled in breadcrumbs and dunked in the deep fat fryer.

P. J. O’Rourke, The Problem is Politics
