QUOTE OF THE DAY....From Edward Lazear, chairman of George Bush's Council of Economic Advisers, on the administration's economic track record:

"It does look like a great eight years, aside from the last quarter, unfortunately."

Actually, he's wrong: it wasn't a great eight years, regardless of whether or not you count the final quarter. But this was still too good a quote not to memorialize.
