Quote of the Day

"Yes, I'm thrilled that he won the election, underscoring the American ideal that we live in a forward-thinking democracy, where any man or woman can rise to the highest office in the land. And I'm proud that even Obama's staunchest foes -- particularly the man he defeated, John McCain -- seem to be willing to accept his victory and pledge to help him turn around the economy and cure the nation's other ills."
-- Jon Friedman

You know, that is kind of an odd statement for a "media watchdog" to make. And I share William Jacobson's skepticism of the president as a magical healer who can lay hands on the nation's ills and effect a cure.

Friedman's a big Rachel Maddow fan, go figure.

    Obama wants to be known as the Great Transmogrifier. He'll wave his magic wand and we'll all be in a better place.
