Quote of the Day

From Sarah Vowell's "Bringing Pell Grants to My Eyes," in today's NY Times:

I have spent the last eight years so disgusted with the incompetent yahoos of the executive branch that I had forgotten that I believe in one of the core principles of the Democratic Party -- that government can be useful, meaningful, and a worthwhile force for good in this republic instead of just an embarrassing, torturing, Book of Revelation starter kit.

And if you always suspected William Safire has never had a thought worth sharing, his little cameo column today won't present contrary evidence. It will not be linked here.
