Quote Of The Day

1 comment June 5th, 2007at 09:44pm Posted by Eli

From a WaPo chat with liberal opinion columnist Eugene Robinson:

McLean, VA: Eugene: I think Richard Cohen’s column today was a good beginning to debunking the myth of Fred Thompson. This attempt by Republicans to compare him to Reagan makes them look like kids in the ’70s who saw their older siblings go crazy for the Beatles and decided to do the same thing … for the Bay City Rollers. My prediction is that the best day of Thompson’s campaign will be the first day.

I kinda like Saturday Night, actually…

That Cohen column is surprisingly un-wankerrific, believe it or not. He basically points out that Thompson was not exactly a mover and shaker in the Senate, and hasn’t really evinced a willingness to put in the hard work and long hours necessary for a presidential campaign, much less an actual presidency.

I think if his campaign doesn’t catch fire right away, he’ll get discouraged and wander back to K Street.
