QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Republican strategist John Feehery, commenting on the McCain campaign’s habit of lying about Sarah Palin’s positions:

“The more the New York Times and The Washington Post go after Sarah Palin, the better off she is, because there’s a bigger truth out there and the bigger truths are she’s new, she’s popular in Alaska and she is an insurgent. As long as those are out there, these little facts don’t really matter.”

Indeed. Pesky little facts should never be allowed to get in the way of bigger truths.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.
