Quote of the day: Metaphysics

We now are confronted with an existential question—to wit, is it possible for an empty suit to file an empty suit?
- Charles Pierce, meditating on the deeper questions raised by politically impotent House Speaker Boehner threatening to file a frivolous suit against – but not impeach – the President for doing legal things that the Speaker finds politically disagreeable. Although Boehner's not yet prepared to say which things he plans to file suit over. Oh no. Not yet. In fact, probably not until after Congress gets back from vacation which starts next week, because, you know, priorities. But whatever it turns out to be, by god, that's what he'll sue him for!
