Quote of the Day: Lowering the Bar on Sympathetic
From Erica Grieder on Game Change, the HBO movie about the 2008 presidential campaign:
Some early reviews have suggested that the movie offers a sympathetic portrayal of Sarah Palin. Considering that she's portrayed as stupid, self-absorbed, shallow, stubborn, volatile, delusional, hysterical, and mentally unstable, "sympathetic" is probably a stretch.
Sure, but she's not portrayed as corrupt. Or a liar. Or a demagogue. Come on! That's not bad!
