Gee, I wish I'd said that. . . .

John Leo has collected aphorisms for 2005 (you know, those pithy one or two liners that convey a world of information). Here are some of them:

"We campaign in poetry; we govern in prose," said President Jed Bartlet of TV's "West Wing." *** Ann Coulter, typically sharper than your average aphorist, said: "When conservative judges strike down laws, it's because of what's in the Constitution. When liberal judges strike down laws, it's because of what's in The New York Times." *** "The right to offend is far more important than any right not to be offended," said Andrew Sullivan [who lately seems to be forgetting his own important aphorism]. *** Entrepreneur Bo Peabody said: "The vast majority of the press is not concerned in covering what is actually happening. They are interested in covering what they think people want to think is actually happening."
