My Hero

Anita Esterday versus the Freak Show:

“You people are really nuts,” she told a reporter during a phone interview. “There’s kids dying in the war, the price of oil right now — there’s better things in this world to be thinking about than who served Hillary Clinton at Maid-Rite and who got a tip and who didn’t get a tip.”



That this quote came at the very end of the story rather than the beginning speaks volumes. There's just no shame. I think most campaign reporters would rather spend an hour being waterboarded than spend it trying to understand the important questions facing the country.
