Quote of the Day

"Because life isn't fair."John McCain, responding to a question about why Barack Obama's popularity has increased as the Wall Street crisis has dominated the news.

If that isn't the most indicative expression of entitlement I've ever heard in my life, I don't know what is. Obama can't be winning because his party's economic policies are better, or because McCain's own party's policies got us into this enormotudinous mess, or because Obama better communicates his economic plan, or because he better connects with financially struggling voters, or because he's more likeable, or because he's just generally a better candidate, or for any other reason.

It's just because life isn't fair to poor, unlucky, unprivileged Johnny McCain.

There are some wet cigarette butts waiting for you in the corner, mardyguts.
