The Upper Hand

On infidelity:

“American men marry their mistresses, which is why they can accurately be said not to have any.”


On politics:

“Politically the American man seems to be constant, cautious, skeptical, placid and frequently selfish and inflexible. He may, however, be unique among political men in that his faults are often the same as his virtues."
