Quote of the Day

Paul Waldman on Obama “politicizing” the Bin Laden killing:

Imagine that you called a carpenter to come repair your deck, and after looking at the rotted timbers and split rails, he said, Well, I can fix this deck. But the one thing Im not going to do is come over here and engage in a bunch of carpentry. That would be wrong.
Youd probably suspect that the carpenter was insane. Yet politicians and their campaign adviserspeople for whom politics is a profession no less than carpentry is the carpenters professionare constantly complaining that their opponents are engaged in politics, or are committing the horrible sin of politicizing something that shouldnt be political.
