Quote of the Day (October 1, 2010)

Stephen Kruiser at Big Journalism:
"The modern American media is still desperately clinging to the vestige of the prominence it once had in the nation’s political conversation. The people who used to dictate not only the subject matter, but the terms of the conversation as well, are now adjusting to being mere participants in that conversation. And the adjustment isn’t going well at all. They’re mad that Sarah Palin is still here after spending two years trying to destroy her and her family. They are incensed that the Tea Party movement has not only survived but has become a dominant political force in a little more than a year... Their feigned concern for the fate of the Republican party might have been something they could sell to a great number of Americans just ten short years ago. But on what planet is anyone in 2010 going to believe that Keith Olbermann gives a whit about what the Tea Party is doing to the GOP?"
