Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

We and They

From the last episode of the The Practice, of all places, where David E. Kelley has been getting more and more gratuitously anti-Bush, comes this new take on things, put in the mouth of the prosecutor played by Kate Hudson [paraphrased]:
My husband is a diehard Republican. He was all in favor of the Iraq war: he said, "We have to defend freedom". When the WMD didn't turn up, he complained, "How could they have been so wrong about that?" In victory, we; in defeat, they.
That's the dynamic that we need: once the Bush administration becomes they, people will be willing to toss them over the side.
