Dave Weigel says this is the best Game Change quote so far. It’s from John McCain:

Fuck you! Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!!!

That’s a good quote. But not as poetic as this one from Sir Richard Mottram, a British civil servant, commenting on a particularly embarrassing PR fiasco:

We’re all fucked. I’m fucked. You’re fucked. The whole department is fucked. It’s the biggest cock-up ever. We’re all completely fucked.

Actually, I’m considering adopting this as my personal weltanschauung — though, as you’d expect from a weltanschauung, you need to sub in “world” for “department” and the cock-up in question would have to change daily. Still, as long as the kids are in the other room it’s pretty serviceable for a wide variety of life’s little predicaments.
