Quote of the day: Misdirection

Sincere as the few anti-Norquist heretics in the GOP may be, I think their primary purpose is misdirection -- they're out there to make it unclear, especially to less attentive citizens, which party is actually compromising and which is refusing to budge.
- Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog, explaining why he isn't much impressed when weasels like Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R - Fourth Ring of Hell) try to put a little temporary daylight between themselves and Grover Norquist.

Chambliss, you may recall, is the piece of work who got into the Senate in 2002 by running TV ads suggesting that the incumbent, triple-amputee war veteran Max Cleland, was somehow linked to Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

If you believe he's had an attack of principle and sound judgment, you must have forgotten how to tell when Chambliss is lying.
