Alan: Republicans are like middle schoolers who think they know it all... until they actually have to accomplish something.
Then, it's revealed that they don't know anything.
Oh, sure. They've good "pure" principles but they're worth about as much as the purest of all principles, "Love your enemies."
Speaking of which...
Where are biblical literalists when they could be of use?

"The terrible thing about our time is precisely the ease with which theories can be put into practice.  The more perfect, the more idealistic the theories, the more dreadful is their realization.  We are at last beginning to rediscover what perhaps men knew better in very ancient times, in primitive times before utopias were thought of: that liberty is bound up with imperfection, and that limitations, imperfections, errors are not only unavoidable but also salutary. The best is not the ideal.  Where what is theoretically best is imposed on everyone as the norm, then there is no longer any room even to be good.  The best, imposed as a norm, becomes evil.”  
"Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander,” by Trappist monk, Father Thomas Merton

"The profoundest truths are paradoxical."
