Quote of the Day

"It's a strange turn of the road when I find among the candidates running this year that the one, in my opinion, closest to the Kennedy legacy, the John F. Kennedy legacy, is John S. McCain."Sen. Joseph Lieberman on ABC’s "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" this weekend.

I'm trying to figure out what, precisely, is supposed to make McCain so much like JFK. The military service? The infidelity? The contributions to a clusterfucktastrophied land war in Asia? I'm flummoxed.

Did Jack Kennedy ever refer to a fellow senator using "a curse word associated with chickens"?

That seems more like Johnson's shtick to me.
