Quote of the day II

Andrew Stevens:
It's important to recognize the politics of all this. When you're marginalizing a Sarah Palin, you don't announce that you're doing it; that would just enrage her supporters. You maneuver behind the scenes, you change some rhetoric here and there in order to placate and subsume the movement so they don't go off in a huff and start their own party. You don't just haul off and call them idiots. I've been watching the Republican Party carry out a master class in assimilation of these folks and what do they get from the people ostensibly on their ideological side? Nothing but grief.
