Voltaire on hearing Romney's new mantra invoked in his "Freedom requires religion" line sat bolt upright. Actually he bumped his head which vexed him all the more.
"Theese Romney fellow is such a slut" he said. "He makes the liar, Karl Rove, seem pristine and chaste in hees willingness to throw the Constitution under the tumbrils."
Voltaire actually showed up with Jeanne D'Arc in a post-Asimov Foundation novel. Interesting conversation. He didn't bump his head as I recall, but he was a little grumpy at being woken up.
I enjoyed your comment(s).
I love this post however and the thought of Voltaire sitting upright and bumping his vexed head!
Seriously- this is a gem.
