Quote of the day: Proportion

Nancy Goldstein, at The Nation's group blog, on why ABC News might be less eager to find ideological connections behind the backpack bomb discovered at the Seattle MLK parade than the reports of death threats to Sarah Palin:

After all, what's a backpack filled with shrapnel aimed at an MLK Day crowd and confirmed by an FBI agent as an instance of domestic terrorism, compared to a Palin aide's hearsay?

(The post also has well-deserved praise for David Neiwert: "In the wake of Tucson, Neiwert has led a virtual master class in how to respond to far-right aggression, denial and evasion.")
