....from Mark Twain, and topical, as it applies to America today:

"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it." -- Mark Twain 

I saw the quote on the front page of The Blue Voice, a new left-leaning collection of bloggers.

In the interest of fairness, I'm also providing a link to The Red Voice who evidently started their own weblog in response to the aforementioned Blue Voice.

Both are worth reading every once in a while - the Blue Voice for intelligent and insightful commentary on the day's news (and more) and the Red Voice for the usual "right" wingnut blathering. (I'm having a lot of fun shooting down the Red Voice bloggers in thier comment threads.)

I'll add both to the blog roll later, but for now just wanted to give both weblogs their "props."
