Amusing myself

In an e-mail just now, I wrote this:
"Compassionate conservatism" was nothing but "national greatness" in evangelical drag -- baptizing the Nanny State, as it were. I liked conservatism back when it was mean-spirited much better than I like it now that it's incompetent.
Sometimes my wife will walk past me at the computer and say, "Why are you smiling? You're amusing yourself again, aren't you?" Guilty as charged.

Otter to Boone in Animal House: "No, no, no. Don't think of it as work. The whole point is just to enjoy yourself."

Eric Stratton, rush chairman, damned glad to meet you!
