QUOTE OF THE DAY….From Josh Patashnik, on the McCain campaign’s contention that a Supreme Court full of elderly justices is a good reason to vote for him instead of sitting home and allowing a Democrat to win in November:

Is McCain endorsing the view that public officials over the age of 70 aren’t likely to last until the end of the next president’s first term? That’s, ah, interesting.

Indeed. In other McCain news, Matt Yglesias highlights a Pew poll that shows something odd: among McCain voters, only 88% view McCain favorably. 5% are unsure and a full 7% don’t like him. What’s up with that?
