Howler of the day (so far!)

What would we do without NPR analyst Cokie Roberts? Here, for example, is her expert take on U.S. presidential elections:

“It doesn't really matter if you have a stand-out candidate or not. I mean, think of who they’ve been — you know, Ted Kennedy was the stand-out candidate who was never elected president. And you’ve had many a year when the Democrats talked about the ‘seven dwarves’ or whatever. And somebody gets nominated and, depending on what the economic circumstances are, somebody gets elected, usually, either out of that crowd or, you know, the other side.”
