Quote of the Day I

Matt Taibbi:

The potential Republican field is made up of two distinct types of candidates: loony-ass, polarizing insurgents drunk on Christian mysticism and/or ego sickness (Michelle Bachmann, Donald Trump, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin) and waffling, opportunistic bores destined to spend most of the primary campaign arguing that they are less terrifying to imagine holding the nuclear briefcase than anyone from the first group (Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney)... Romney is one of the first politicians Iíve ever covered who is a fair bet to change his mind on an issue in the middle of a speech. His whole political career is one of the funniest things Iíve ever experienced. In fact, itís too bad South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker didnít include Romneyís career as one of the mathematically-inevitable jokes invented by the German-designed ďFunnyBotĒ from their awesome new episode last night Ė Romney is what you get when a creature raised entirely in the corporate marketing world enters politics and honestly doesnít realize that you canít change your mind with the times the same way you change food labels or car designs.
