Thursay Open Thread

It's Les Enragés eighth day in operation, and everybody's pretty giddy about the Lamont victory. We''ll have lots of opportunity to continue to chant, "Go, Ned, Go!" from now until his victory in November. The link is to a Counterpunch editorial on the significance of the win. "..the war in Iraq is hugely unpopular, and since that war was supported by about 90 per cent of the US congress, all its members have something to fear from the voters, which is why many of them are redeploying as advocates of withdrawal."

That's A quote, but it's not THE quote. For tonight, and keeping with the theme:

"I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it." -- Dwight D. Eisenhower
