Quote of the Day – 10.03.08


QUOTE OF THE DAY….From National Review editor Rich Lowry on last night’s debate:

I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America.

I think this goes in the annals of blog posts he’ll someday wish he hadn’t pressed the “Publish” button on.

UPDATE: Then there’s this from Jonah Goldberg: “It is amazing how the press can focus on how Palin’s a disaster and then the second she stops being one, the press yawns as if this is a non-story.” Huh? The press is supposed to write banner headlines whenever Palin refrains from being a disaster?
