Quote For The Day


"Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor," - Mudflats.

Of course, I'd vote for Pilate. But Mudflats homes in on another unhinged untruth in Palin's speech:

The stunner of the speech for me? “I said thanks, but no thanks to that Bridge to Nowhere”. Frankly, I was surprised she said it the first time, shocked she said it the second time, but again? Almost incomprehensible. This must be her test to see if that old George Bush theory that if you say something enough, people will just believe it's true. No other explanation seems possible.

I'm not sure whether I'm more stunned by Palin or McCain. I'm not stunned by the ecstatic response of Christianists, Karl Rove or Bill Kristol. I wrote this book, after all. I am stunned that McCain has proved himself this reckless and incompetent. But that's what we have campaigns for: we see their executive skills up close.

McCain makes George W. Bush look prudent.
