Chesterton on McCain & Obama

Yes – the fat man speaks from the grave and sums up our two candidates:

“There are two kinds of peacemakers in the modern world; and they are both, though in various ways, a nuisance. The first peacemaker is the man who goes about saying that he agrees with everybody. He confuses everybody. The second peacemaker is the man who goes about saying that everybody agrees with him. He enrages everybody. Between the two of them they produce a hundred times more disputes and distractions than we poor pugnacious people would ever have thought of in our lives.” (G.K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News 3-3-06)
