There’s a certain obscenity in McCain’s gassing about the “decency” of the United States when outside the hall his cops were brutalising innocent people. But my favourite line was this one: “if you’re disappointed with the mistakes of government, join its ranks and work to correct them.” Try substituting “the Mafia” (or “the Gestapo,” or “the Sith,” or “the Hosts of Hell”) for “government” in that sentence.

Many happy returns!
They can count. (Conical hat tip to LRC.)
