Quote of the Day

Dan Kennedy, on Bush's farewell address:

"You may not agree with some tough decisions I have made," he said. "But I hope you can agree that I was willing to make the tough decisions." Presidents, needless to say, must decide. It is not immediately apparent why we should give Bush credit merely for making decisions, when virtually every decision he's made for the past eight years has been wrong and damaging to the country and the world.
What Bush wants, in other words, is credit just for trying. A participation trophy, if you will. Jon Chait has more.

I got one of those once, for the one season I played Little League (1988). The team, FWIW, was the Expos.
