Love Groucho, his quote here is a sound bite and face to today's politicians.
 -- Mike, Norwalk     
    There are few people in Washington DC with principles and fewer in Chicago and Springfield. Of course, Obama didn't know anything about all this and it never snows in Minnesota.

    Mike, I love Groucho also.

    A lady on Wheel of Fortune the other day claimed that Groucho bumped into her on the street near Central Park, NY. He said characteristically, "Why don't you watch wher I am going." Pat Sajack the MC asked the lady, "Did he ask you for a date" and she replied "No". "It must not have been the real Groucho then" Sajack rejoindered. Y'a gotto love Gourcho. Some contributors hereto think they have me sized up and pigeon holed on what my opinions and principles are and then I apparently surprize them with some new ones or nuanced ones. Keep your options open is what Groucho is saying here, don't be so dogmatic and locked stepped. We have independent minds thank God and should use them.

    Classic. (Give it a rest, Waffler, you have not provided any new opinions or nuances -- it is the same old sychophantic BS.)

    he was making a joke waffler.
