"Hey Karl. Endorse Rick Perry for president."

"Fuck you. I'm not endorsing Rick Perry. He doesn't bring enough Florida to the political game."

"Come on. Endorse Rick Perry."

"Hell no."

"Karl, endorse Rick Perry or we are going to force you to ride the Tourbillon."

"Ride the WHAT?"


"Oh dear God. OK, I firmly endorse Rick Perry for president and emperor and king of everything please please please do not make me ride that.

From The Economist: The latest American mass killing

"Those who live in America, or visit it, might do best to regard (mass killings) the way one regards air pollution in China: an endemic local health hazard which, for deep-rooted cultural, social, economic and political reasons, the country is incapable of addressing. This may, however, be a bit unfair. China seems to be making progress on pollution."

Quite frankly, these shows are starting to make me kind of homesick.
