Quote of the Day
“Politics is about more than mathematics. It is also a matter of will. Polite Georgetown insiders didnít like to admit this. Sometimes they willfully ignored itómoderates could be as oblivious to evidence that didnít confirm their biases as any conspiracy-mongering extremist. Rabid partisans beat moderates all the time, precisely by dint of the very passion that sometimes blinds them.”
-- Rick Perlstein in “The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan,” writing about the 1976 Republican convention but with a message for any time. Certainly for the 2014 mid-terms.†
