QUOTE OF THE DAY…. I really do love gems like these.

Senator Lindsey Graham, warming up a North Carolina audience for McCain, assured them that McCain would win: “[John McCain] fits North Carolina like a glove…. I’ll beat Michael Phelps in swimming before Barack Obama wins North Carolina.”… Graham continued, “Don’t let me down, because I can’t swim.”

The comments came just seven days before the election. Obama won in North Carolina.
