Quote of the Day

Here's David Weigel on Hit & Run, taking apart a bizarre quote from Dick Morris that Barack Obama "has never introduced a bill and never been important":

"This is both weird and inaccurate. Weird because Morris only exists to attack the Clintons and battle Hillary's presidential bid. He's written three books on the subject. If her bid collapsed, so would he, like an assassin choking down the cynanide capsule once the bullet sinks into the Generalissimo's brain. Inaccurate because, well Obama has introduced bills. Beyond what Media Matters lists, Obama co-sponsored, with Tom Coburn, a transparency bill that would let voters see every earmark their representatives inserted into a spending package. That right there is more impressive (to me) than anything John Kerry or John Edwards ever passed. And I'd bet it has more salience with voters than the mushy warmongering and video game bashing of the former First Lady."
Another reason to back Obamamania: if Hillary goes away, so does Dick!

Dick Morris is a bitter old closeted hypocrite. Have you ever heard his voice? He talks like a girl!!
