So where DID David Axelrod go to school?

Yesterday's Wall St Journal front page story quoted Obama top advisor David Axelrod as saying "Making laws is simular to making sausages, you don't want to watch it happening". Neither Axelrod nor the WSF reported seemed to know that they were paraphasing a famous quotation of Otto von Bismarck, the Iron Chancellor from two centuries ago. Do schools teach anything these days?

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.
Otto von Bismarck
