Quote of the Week

This one just won't stop rattling around in my head. Recently, Bill Maher made some predictably classless remarks about a predictable target, highlighting some predictable double standards. The whole affair is eminently forgettable. Tam's response, on the other hand, is priceless.

Way to keep the discourse elevated, there, Bill. You wouldn't know the high ground if the quaestores ordered you hurled off of it.

This is the platonic ideal of the bon mot: punchy, clever, and just obscure and google-resistant enough to let you feel smugly superior for getting it.

Brava, signora; brava.
