So...teabaggers and town-halls became cause for some reflection on the sublimity of our discourse. We now are presented daily with questions so unanswerable that saints and sages have used them for centuries as aids in achieving spiritual transformation.

Consider these ageless imponderables:

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

What happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?

Can an omnipotent God create an object too heavy for itself to lift?

How many angels can fit on the head of a pin?

Who is more worthy of ridicule: those who claim the Healthcare Reform Bill will lead to authoritarian socialism, or those who claim the Healthcare Reform Bill will lead to...healthcare reform?

Any possible answer leads to an infinitely recurring series of self-contradictions and paradoxes. The limits of human cognition are reached almost immediately. It's almost...magical.
