Quote of the Day

Andrew Sullivan argues that McCain was not a war hero and has never been to Vietnam, because a McCain campaign ad shows the cross drawn in the dirt with a stick, but McCain has said the guard drew the cross with his sandal.

Ann Althouse, destroys Sully, and gets in a pretty fine bon mot:

It can't help Obama to show that McCain ad over and over again for the purpose of arguing about a stick and a sandal. I think ordinary people who aren't dumb enough to think we're looking at the original footage (or stickage, if you will) would regard it as weirdly disproportionate to obsess over the detail of sticks and sandals.
