He said that?

“Any politician from either side of the aisle who says one thing and then votes the other way needs to be held accountable.”

The above quote, from Democrat Pete Talbot, who has never been known to hold a Democrat accountable under any circumstances, is hereby nominated as the quote of the day, September 22, 2015.

    Solzhenitsyn claimed the prisoners wept when news of Stalin’s death reached them.


    • In a curious and skeptical person, that statement would trigger a question – why are Russian and American views of Stalin so different?

      You then might travel down a path of inquiry and, along the way, learn not just about the Russian view of Stalin, but of divergent views of World War II and the so-called “Cold War.” God knows what else you might stumble onto.

      Or, you could just say “Man, them Russians. They’s stupid.”


      • Big Swede says:

        In this application Solzhenitsyn observation speaks more to blind devotion than to the opinions of Americans and Russians as a whole.

        If someone were to ask the remnants of Russian Kulaks their views of Stalin they’d differ greatly.
