Sorry, I’m in election mode

I enjoyed this quote:

“Whereas the left wing tends to attract bleeding hearts, the right-wing tends to attract jerks.  Of course there are all sorts of fancy intellectual reasons why one might want to shrink government, reduce taxes, and curtail entitlement programs. But a lot of people support these policies because they don’t care about anybody but themselves. They are, in other words, self-interested jerks.”
