"If you are going to go through hell, keep going."

Winston Churchill

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle.

The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."

Ayn Rand.

Politicising public office

So Gordon Brown has flown to Iraq. It is topping the news schedules still and has all day. Can you explain just one thing to me, though? Why, oh why does the British taxpayer need to pay for the Chancellor of the Exchequer to visit? Shouldn't the Foreign Secretary or Defence Secretary be a little ahead of him in the queue?

Go Joe!

This is what politics is about. Wouldn't it be a dream story if Lieberman held onto Connecticut despite being dumped by the dinosaurs of the left who dominate the Democratic Party there?
