Quote of the Day I

Jonathan Chait, reacting to a poll that Republican primary voters trust Newt Gingrich with nuclear weapons more than any other candidate:

If youre surprised that they picked Newt instead of, say, the sober, careful, calculating Mitt Romney (chosen by 17 percent), youre not thinking like a right-winger. The guy you would trust most with nuclear weapons means the guy most likely to use nuclear weapons. Romney would probably wimp out. Gingrich would use nukes to settle a fishing dispute, or possibly to impress a prospective fourth wife.
