OK, I guess I'm glad I had to study literature. A little bit.

From someone going by the handle of Bumperstickerist, in a comment on a blog entry about the Hildebeast in Wisconsin:

I met a pollster from an antique land,
Who said--"Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand, one in Texas...., one near Canton,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose brow, and wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The electorate that mocked them, and the press that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
'My name is Hillarymandias,
Look on my resume and campaign fundraising, ye fellow Democrats, and despair!'
Nothing else remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away. Heh.

The "Heh." is an allusion to Glenn Reynold's fine blog Instapundit, where often one will find a link to something particularly funny or ironic, with Glenn commenting only, "Heh."... and speaking of Instapundit, thanks to guest blogger Megan McArdle for quoting it and linking to the original comment.
