I felt I needed to share this line, I don't know why it struck me as so funny...

"Burris stared him down for ~3 seconds until Reid folded, which he does all the time, because he’s a pussy." -Wonkette

followed by the response

"Harry Reid looks like he’s composed of oatmeal and Elmer’s Glue. What a hapless douch. A four year-old could outwit that loser."

This is shaping into a season of great retorts, anyone else read any nifty ones lately?

I've read some magnificent comments recently in the British press...

From Glasgow MP Ian Davidson referring to the Scottish government buying a painting: "It is difficult to argue that this is part of Britain's cultural heritage when it's a picture by a long dead Venetian - it's not as if it's Jock McTitian."  (I may agree with the sentiment but the phrasing is unfortunate).

Recently in a lecture to Yale University Tony Blair said "It is true that we had ten years of record growth when I was Prime Minister. I have, unfortunately, come to the conclusion that it was luck." (Of course it wasn't luck, but still).

Gordon Brown once promised to end boom and bust.  Recently he clarified this in an interview with the Daily Mail "I actually said, 'No more Tory boom and bust'."

So what you're telling me is that LTV's fudge factor means more than it's independent variable?
