Nothing that human beings do is intractable.  It is true that the
brain does far more things in parallel than any computer system,
but the brain works in milliseconds, while our computers work in
nanoseconds or even picoseconds.    (02)

Undecidability never deterred any human being.  Just think of
our Decider-in-Chief, G. W. Bush.  If he can decide, so can
any computer.    (04)

If anything would speed up decision making, it would be
emotions.  Just look how fast John McCain chose Sarah P.    (05)
