Quote of the day

In the "And finally..." slot of this mornings Today programme, the head honcho of Anything Left-Handed was interviewed about the fact that both of the US presidential candidates are left-handed, as indeed were a disproportionate number of senior American politicians, Bill Clinton included.

She put forward the theory that left-handers have an enlarged corpus callosum, facilitating intracranial communication and improving verbal skills. This, she surmised, enabled left-handed politicians to "update their beliefs more quickly".

So then, they not only spin whatever they think we want to hear, but they convince themselves that they believe it. Frankly I'd feel safer with a bunch of cynical liars; at least they'd have a clearer intellectual understanding of the consequences of their actual policies.
