Literary reference ala Krugman

Know-Nothing Politics –
By PAUL KRUGMAN Published: August 7, 2008
So the G.O.P. has found its issue for the 2008 election. For the next three months the party plans to keep chanting: “Drill here! Drill now! Drill here! Drill now! Four legs good, two legs bad!” O.K., I added that last part.

It’s from George Orwell’s "Animal Farm."  *lol*  I know it’s weird, but I like it when a writer sticks in a literary reference, but leaves it up to the reader to figure it out.  Makes me feel all clever & stuff, and deeply appreciative for my liberal arts education.

Actually, I think I read Animal Farm in junior high school…  Wonderfully subversive stuff.
