Quote of the Day

…overheard last night on Keith Olberman. He was interviewing the editor of Rolling Stone about their “Troublemakers of the Year” list, which, coincidentally, included Olberman. While discussing how they selected the listees, Mr. Editor noted that President Bush had enough problems with the war and

“…the sputtering economy.”

UPDATE: Got it. The moron’s name is Will Dana, managing editor of “Rolling Stone.”

DANA: Well, you know, it‘s people who are pushing the envelope. People who are pushing back against this sort of conformity, corruption, stupidity that seems to be raining across America now.
People who, you know, as Michael Moore said, seemed real. You know, that‘s not easy to say. And, yes, this list—It was kind of a lousy year in a lot of ways. You know, war, disasters, the sputtering economy and, you know, we looked around and wanted to have something that we could feel a little better about, you know. And we thought these guys who are up there, you know, they‘re fighting the fight and they‘re getting in the face of the people running the country.

    Why is he concerned about one tiny little portion of the chip industry? Shouldn’t he be concerned about larger industries?

  2. No transcript yet to link to. I can’t wait to see it in print, it was that stunning. Whoosh, right over Olberman’s head. But when you’re so busy sucking up because someone puts your face in a magazine, you can’t be bothered with trivial details, or, God forbid, correcting he whom you sucketh up to. Now, the intro to the list is apparently written by Michael Moore, so the editor not having a clue about the real world is understandable. And they all lived happily everafterward on Planet Hollywood.

    5% unemployment = sputtering economy under Bush
    5% unemployment = The Clinton Miracle under, uh, Clinton.
    Nope. No bias here.

    Are you sure you heard that right? Check the transcript, I think it was the commentator who was sputtering.
