Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Jokes About Obama's Senate Seat

They aren't great, but it's a work in progress. Feel free to add your own.

-Comes with a zero interest loan, since that's exactly how much interest Obama has had in it over the past 4 years.
-It's like new. Barely ever used.
-That market downturn has been worse than we thought. Senator Obama paid $10 million for his Senate seat in 2004, but now Blagojevich is struggling just to get $500,000 offers.

-The governor hasn't ruled out a special election...provided that he gets a 10% cut of all election funds raised.
-Finally, Republicans LIKE Patrick Fitzgerald and Democrats are starting to wonder about the guy.
-Further confirmation of the bad economy. Hillary Clinton is turning to work as a secretary rather than keep her Senate seat.
