Irish Eyes

Irish journalist and film-maker Phelim McAleer on the Dennis Miller show:
I came to America looking for right-wingers obsessed with bedrooms and sex. Then I discovered all these left-wingers and liberals obsessed with every other room in the house.

They want to know what's in your fridge, is it bottled water, how much electricity your fridge uses, what's in your thermostat? How [do] you insulate your attic? What's in your garage? What's your car? They even want to know what's in your lightbulb, what's in your lamp?
In the tradition of de Tocqueville, some of the keenest observations about America are made by outsiders.
