This week, Clown Central Station will feature links to our favorite right-wing blowhardery behind tags featuring quotes from the late Mrs. Favell Lee Mortimer. Mrs. Mortimer, whose delightful combination of high-handed piety, condescension and ignorant cultural slander educated several generations of imperialists, has proved a lasting influence on the neoconservative warblogger of today. Please enjoy Mrs. Mortimer Week here at CCS.
"The Persians are very deceitful. An old Persian was heard to say, 'We all tell lies whenever we can.' The Persians are not even ashamed when their falsehoods are found out. When they sell they ask too much; when they make promises they break them. In short, it is impossible to trust a Persian."
