Does It Matter?

I found this G&S routine on the Eschaton blog, posted by Atrios, with the title Punditry.

If you can’t keep up with patter, well, it probably doesn’t matter, but here’s a translation, provide by Atrios, anyway:

If I were not a little mad and generally silly
I should give you my advice upon the subject, willy-nilly;
I should show you in a moment how to grapple with the question,
And you’d really be astonished at the force of my suggestion.
On the subject I shall write you a most valuable letter,
Full of excellent suggestions when I feel a little better,
But at present I’m afraid I am as mad as any hatter,
So I’ll keep ’em to myself, for my opinion doesn’t matter.
