It's Not Just a Good Idea, it's Muggeridge's Law

Moe Lane, defeated by reality:

If I understand this story correctly, the Amtrak station in Wilmington renamed for the Vice President (and Stimulus Czar) was not only an over-budget stimulus project; its dedication ceremony was complicated by the CEO’s inability to get to the soiree via Amtrak.  His train broke down, you understand, so the poor man had to arrange for a car to take him the rest of the way.

See what I mean?  Actually, reality has not only defeated me; it’s now looming over my prone form and taunting me about my mom.

But of course: in a fight pitting a satirist against reality, reality will win every time.

It’s the law.
