Quote of the Day

"If McCain wants to mock Obama, perhaps he should pick a topic in which a) Obama is mistaken; and b) McCain knows what he’s talking about."Steve Benen, on the two candidates' tit-for-tat on al-Qaeda and Iraq.

And you thought I was kidding when I suggested the possibility there could be no swing states in November because "maybe McCain (as he is wont to do) will have thrown an enormous tantrum during one of the debates, calling Obama 'a curse word associated with chickens' and yelling into the camera 'I am Thor the god of thunder!' while ripping open his shirt to reveal a prominent tattoo of Thor's Oak, prompting his approval ratings to plummet into the single digits." He really is prone to some unimaginable idiocy.
