Quote of the Day

Jonathan Chait, on the deflating of the Palin bubble:

Even though Palin took ten times the national per capita average in earmarked spending, in this regard she still rates somewhat below average by the standards of the petro-kleptocracy of the state from which she hails. Yet this defense raises the question of why Ted Kennedy never thought to run for president on the slogan "He Never Took a Drink In His Life," and then, when challenged, point out that other members of his family are less sober than he.
It's a good column and he makes a good point, but who are we kidding: Chait is a member of the elite media and he's viciously attacking Sarah Palin, so his opinion doesn't count.
