With apologies to fellow blogger Aggie, I nominate this as the Quote of the Year:
?If she had lived, Mary Jo Kopechne would be 62 years old. Through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age.?
– Charles Pierce in a January 5 Boston Globe Magazine article. Kopechne drowned while trapped in Kennedy?s submerged car off Chappaquiddick Island in July 1969, an accident Kennedy did not report for several hours.
The Media Research Center also feels the same way, which is where I got the quote. I wish I had the wit to make this kind of thing up.
Beat that. Show me a better one.
