They've lost Jesse 

Well, they'll just tell you he's too old to make sense any more. Or something like that. From the Washington Post (scroll down), via atrios:

"I would not have voted for [President Bush's] tax cut, based on what I know. . . . There is no doubt that the people at the top who need a tax break the least will get the most benefit. . . . Too often presidents do things that don't end up helping the people they should be helping, and their staffs won't tell them their actions stink on ice."

-- Former senator Jesse Helms (R-N.C.), in a recent interview with Business North Carolina magazine.

"...stink on ice." Now there's a phrase you don't hear every day, except from people who lived through the Great Depression.
