A Beautiful Comment

Over at The Smirking Chimp they posted my “Country in Crisis” piece, and someone left this comment:

“Remember that great scene from Jackie Brown, with Jackson and de Niro in the van? That’s the situation on a global scale now: the rest of the world is sitting next to America and asking, in Samuel L. Jackson’s voice, “What happened to you man? Your ass used to be so beautiful!” And America, like De Niro, has no answer.”

Beautiful.
