Quote of the Day

Alex Pareene, as part of his ranking of the "Hack 30," tees off on Bush speechwriter/torture booster/columnist Marc Thiessen:

But while the worst thing about Thiessen as a person is his unequivocal support for torture, the worst thing about hiring him to pen an Op-Ed column is that he's a boring, predictable columnist. The man got famous for arguing that plainly illegal treatment of prisoners is in fact both legal and necessary, and then he writes columns about how earmarks are bad. It's like telling Torquemada to film a TV pilot and he comes back with a three-camera sitcom about a lovable fat guy dealing with family life.
It's hard to argue with the choice of Richard Cohen as #1.
