Another Vonnegut quote

When author Kurt Vonnegut died the other day, we posted a few quotes from him, and now we've gleaned another from

Vonnegut offered this observation just a few years ago:

"I myself feel that our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been. What has happened, though, is that it has been taken over by means of the sleaziest, low-comedy, Keystone Cops-style coup d’etat imaginable. And those now in charge of the federal government are upper-crust C-students who know no history or geography, plus not-so-closeted white supremacists, aka 'Christians,' and plus, most frighteningly, psychopathic personalities."

UPDATE: OK, one more Vonnegut quote: "Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand."
