Quote of the Day
“So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse, can seem small and mean and petty. Trafficking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage. It's a politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born of fear.”
Barack Obama, speaking at the funeral of Sen. John McCain, and referencing the absent man who keeps up his petty pace from day to day.
