Quote of the Day (August 16, 2009)

The WSJ's James Tarranto:
"The fearless, independent journalists of the Los Angeles Times justify their assertion that the Palin claim was 'widely discredited' with an appeal to authority--the authority of the White House, which is to say, the other side in the debate. One suspects the breathtaking inadequacy of this argument would have been obvious to Times reporters Christi Parsons and Andrew Zajac if George W. Bush were still president. And of course this appears in a story about how the Senate was persuaded to act in accord with Palin's position--which doesn't prove that position right but does show that it is widely (though, to be sure, not universally) credited."
