Quote of the Day

Jeffrey Goldberg, on the Bush-led assassination of Bin Laden:

Man, my inbox is filling up with e-mails from haters worried that the killing of Osama Bin Laden might be understood as Barack Obama’s achievement. Imagine that: Crediting Barack Obama for ordering this operation, when it obviously should be credited to President Martin Van Buren… To which I suggest the following slogan to the Obama campaign: “Barack Obama: He Rescued General Motors and Killed Osama Bin Laden. How About You?”I apologize for this burst of splenetic partisanship, but really: How ridiculous can people be? There are some people out there who, if Barack Obama cured cancer, would blame him for neglecting the fight against heart disease.
