The unforgiving minute

Three quotes concerning Powell's Obama endorsement:

[Regarding McCain's choice of the unqualified Palin and the McCain-Palin campaign's use of falsehoods to attack Obama personally] "I look at these kind of approaches to the campaign, and they trouble me. […] Over the last seven weeks, the approach of the Republican Party has become narrower and narrower."

-- Former Sec. of State Colin Powell
on "Meet the Press" this morning

Taking part in the collective lie about how the Republican party operates has always been part of Powell's schtick, and the fact that he's jumping off that ship right now doesn't really elevate him in my estimation.

-- Jane Hamsher, Firedoglake

The function of liberal Republicans is to shoot the wounded after the battle.

-- attributed to Eugene McCarthy

Minute's up.
