Quote of the day: Barking peckerwood lunacy

Note To ABC: One man's "bold words" are another man's barking peckerwood lunacy. The Preamble to the Declaration Of Independence is made up of "bold words."
- Charlie Pierce, carefully explaining to one of our Major Networks that referring to the Civil War as “The War of Northern Aggression” is not quite on a moral or intellectual par with “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” – and, incidentally, that one man's pledging his life, liberty, and sacred honor to a cause is not exactly the same as another man's protecting his revenue stream.
