Ted Nugent Stealing George Will's Titles

Ted Nugent: Of Crockett and de Tocqueville

Among other such gems we find:
While travelling around America in the 1830s, French statesman Alex de Tocqueville observed, “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
Really, JanusNode can do better than this.

In Article 1, Section 8: "To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States..."

The Congress is supposed to serve as the local government of the District, which includes Georgetown, and its actions as local government are not limited by the Constitutional limits on its power as the national legislative body.

At any rate, Nugent's article a warmed over chain email with a couple stale cliches thrown in for spice. Until his apparently vestigial brain begins to function, maybe he should take the advice he so graciously gave to Bruce Springsteen: "So I think that Bruce probably should shut up and sing." Except maybe forget the singing part.

I see he's no longer the Motor City Madman. Now he's the Texas Wildman and lives next door to the W.

I googl├Ęd that quote he attributes to Tocqueville. As you might imagine, he's one of many who like it and repeat it. As you also might imagine, it never comes with any specific citation, as it may not have come from Tocqueville in the first place.

Davy Crockett upset my home.

"may not have come from Tocqueville in the first place"?

Teh Wikiquotes site points out that Not-de-Tocqueville is a second-stage metastasis -- a variation of the "stages of a civilisation' bullshit made up by some previous liar in the chain and attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler.

Perhaps I would have more success in my scientific career if I worded my crap ideas in sententious prose and attributed them to someone else.

Yes, but Aristotle was using the word in the old sense of 'recipe'.
