Awesome random quote

As you know, some blogs have all kinds of stuff in the sidebar (we're sort of minimal that way here at DR), including random quotations. I think Clark had one from Strawson that I commented on some time ago. Anyway, I just got a great one at Pharyngula:
The politics of failure has failed! And I say we must move forward, not backward! Upward, not forward! And always twirling, twirling, TWIRLING toward freedom!

Kodos, (disguised as Bob Dole), THE SIMPSONS
That episode has some great bits. ("Go ahead, throw your vote away!")

I remember that episode (greatness). Pharyngula has omitted a line. Kang says "The politics of failure have failed. We need to make them work again." Brilliant.

Right you are. Like PZ, I also get Kang and Kodos mixed up (Kang was Dole). Here's another great bit, from the real Kodos:

"I am Clin-Ton. As overlord, all will kneel trembling before me and obey my brutal commands. End communication." Rather cryptic remarks there, as Kent Brockman comments, attributed by aides to "an overly tight necktie." I particularly like the gesture accompanying "End communication."
