Quote of the Day

Michael Tomasky on the GOP field:

There is no savior. And let us please be clear on why there is no savior. Because there is no one who can satisfy the base of the GOPa cohort so drunk on ideology and resentment that they cheer electrocutions and boo a soldierand be elected president of the United States. Period. The standard journalistic trope the past few months has been to say that the Republican establishment would step in at some point and not let things get too out of hand. But thats mostly nonsense. This GOP establishment is barely less loopy than the base. If the base is driving the party into a ditch, the establishment is riding shotgun holding a shovel.
