Fat lady’s song not the final answer

Quip of the week, no question:

A pro-abortion zealot once castigated his pro-life opponents, saying, “Don’t you people get it? You’ve lost. It’s over. The fat lady has sung.” To which one of them replied, “It is not over when the fat lady sings. It is over when the angel blows his trumpet.” – Christopher Beiting

This fellow can talk to me any time.

One thought on “Fat lady’s song not the final answer

  1. It’s a common delusion that an electoral outcome resolves any and all questions, e.g., you pass a health care bill and all health care issues are resolved. The actual effects of such victories are treated as irrelevant—an obvious absurdity.
