Quote of the Day

QUOTE OF THE DAY….From New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, speaking at the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, on the continuing whisper campaign that Barack Obama is Muslim:

“Let’s call those rumors what they are: lies. They are cloaked in concern for Israel, but the real concern is about partisan politics….This is wedge politics at its worst, and we’ve got to reject it — loudly, clearly, and unequivocally.”

Good for him. Via Taegan Goddard.
