Quote of The Day
I would suggest that it was when the Democrats finally took the issue of Iraq seriously that the country began to take them seriously. And it wasn't because it was a "daddy issue." It was because it was the most important issue on the table. It still is.
Digby, discussing the nonsense meme of the "mommy/daddy" political parties.

When the politicians lead, people respect them. When they pander, they're seen as sissies. If you want a prime example, look at St. John's tanking poll numbers since he's been the Preznit's bootlicker-in-chief vs. his popularity when he really did take a stand.
