A right-wing wit

Posted by Tory Historian Friday, June 29, 2007

Tory Historian intended to put up a couple of serious conservative quotes but found the following two comments from P. J. O'Rourke:

You say we [reporters] are distracting from the business of government. Well, I hope so. Distracting a politician from governing is like distracting a bear from eating your baby.
I am not sure bears on this side of the Pond do eat babies but the sentiment is impeccable. How about this:
There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.
Tory Historian is expecting lots of angry comments.


  1. Sir Pointon Says:
  2. I am delighted to find a corner of the British web that is dry enough for P J O'Rourke. So sorry not to be angry.

  3. We aim to please. :)

  4. Simon Harley Says:
  5. Been years since I've read O'Rourke. "Parliament of Whores" was always good for some serious thinking over a whiskey and soda.
