Quote of the day: Subcontracting the wet work

If anything, Donald Atwater Segretti Cheney Trump deserves credit for having the guts to do his own dirty work instead of jobbing it out to professional ratfucking perverts like Karl Rove and Jerome Corsi.

- Driftglass, on the dubious virtue attached to Trump's now-famous attack on John McCain's POW status.

The Short-Fingered Vulgarian probably deserves some sort of credit for the previously unimaginable achievement of making McCain a sympathetic figure again, however briefly. And there was also a short moment when it looked like he'd also given his GOP rivals something they could actually attack him on without shooting themselves in the foot, but as Driftglass and his commenters note, that lasted about a day before fifteen years of Republican history caught up with them.

Hell, it's not even the first time they've pulled something like this on McCain. He should be used to getting pantsed by his fellow GOP candidates by this time.

This probably means I can no longer avoid creating a Trump tag for the blog, but I dread having to go back and find all the previous mentions of him to update them.
