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.

Connecticut Senate Race

The resignation of Senator Dodd puts Connecticut's Senate seat squarely back in the column of a "Safe Democratic" race. The state's AG seems to have commanding leads over every Republican opponent. I'd say that this turn of events can mean only one thing. The Republicans need to go with Linda McMahon as their candidate. I know her poll numbers trail those of former Congressman Rob Simmons, but Linda has a special advantage. Vince. For those not familiar with the world of professional wrestling, Vince is known for finding unique ways of dealing with his opposition. He even has an assessment of the new health care plan prepared.
