David Harsanyi, ageist:
When I drop dead — excuse me, “pass away” — I expect to have a remote control and an alcoholic beverage in hand, a white Cadillac out front and a rigid belief that government owes me stuff. Politicians, it seems, only stop working to move into a correctional facility or a pine box. Really, are they so exceptional that we can’t let them go?
In all fairness, David, I think it’s cheaper to keep’em.
