Quote of the Day

"What is up with all these Republicans?"—Then-President George W. Bush, upon being informed that Republican Senator Larry Craig had pleaded guilty to having a wide stance misdemeanor disorderly conduct in an airport restroom.

Bush apparently also responded to Ed Gillespie's insistence on inserting into a speech Bush was to give in 2008 at Furman University a few lines condemning gay marriage, "I'm not going to tell some gay kid in the audience that he can't get married." Amanda at Think Progress wryly notes, "Of course, Bush ran his 2004 campaign telling that kid just that."
