Mr. Graham, it appears, has a splendid inferiority complex. To make up for this fully justified complex, he must project power, a power no less troubling than Mr. Graham’s verbal servility.

What’s troubling, however, is his infirmity will be the basis of the most arbitrary assumption of power, a paraphernalia of power, no person should have.

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke
