Quote of the Day

QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), explaining what he meant when he said he was “underwhelmed” by White House discussions on Iraq that he had participated in:

Let me say this. George Bush is a very compassionate person. He’s a very good person. And a lot of people don’t see that in him, and there’s many people in this room who might disagree with that….I just felt a little bit underwhelmed by our discussions, the complexity of them, the depth of them.

Insert obvious joke here.
