Incredible as it may seem, some Democrats are actually trying to make a big deal about the absurd turkey scandal. Even more difficult to believe, the DNC’s own weblog, Kicking Ass, is actually trying to make the point that the turkey non-issue points to the larger credibility. Heh.
Who is advising these people? Are these guys all Karl Rove plants? Who is telling these knuckleheads what to do? Al this time, and I thought Amy Carter was the worst advisor the Democrats ever had.

Reader and commenter Tom Scott sends in this humorous Roger Staubach anecdote:
But he’ll never come up with a quote to match Staubach. The year after he retired (1980), he was in the booth during one Monday night game involving the Cardinals, who had their typical swiss cheese secondary and were getting scorched as usual. During the week before the game, President Carter, in a campaign speech (or perhaps in a debate with Reagan) had made some saccharine reference to his daughter Amy’s “fear” of a nuclear war. Staubach, with a perfect deadpan voice, remarked to Cosell as the Cardinals were being threatened once again, “You know, Howard, the Cardinals have the same problem as Amy Carter….They’re both afraid of The Bomb.” I don’t remember Cosell’s reaction, but the room I was in (which included many Democrats) didn’t stop laughing for the entire evening.
