Quote of the Day

Steve Kornacki in Salon, making fun of "Democratic pollsters" Pat Caddell and Douglas Schoen, whose advice to Obama always boils down to "give the Republicans everything they want":

Chances are that, on some level, Caddell and Schoen understand this. In the past few years, they’ve essentially established themselves as professional self-loathing Democrats -- supposed experts with important-sounding credentials who will sound off (often in Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal or on Fox News) about their dismay that the Democratic Party and its leaders are committing political suicide. Never mind that the party has won the popular vote in four of the past five presidential elections and never mind the Democrats’ success in 2006 and 2008: In Caddell/Schoen World, the Democratic Party is perpetually wheezing out its final breaths, a victim of its refusal to take seriously the criticisms of Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly.
To these guys, Obama's act of continuing to live and breathe is unforgivably standing in the way of bipartisanship.
