Lets get the month

Let’s get the month rolling with a couple choice quotes.

This is from the New York Times Editorial Page’s December 1st tribute to Mary Jo White, out-going United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

Because of her reputation for integrity and independence — hers is jokingly referred to in Washington as the “sovereign district” — the Bush administration has also allowed Ms. White to pursue inquiries into Senator Robert Torricelli’s relationship with a fund-raiser, as well as former President Clinton’s 11th-hour pardons.

Is this one of those “errors of fact and of logic” that Ira Stoll talks about? Allowed? Please.

Next Quote.

You’re a man of great moderation, Mr. Perle.

– Chris Matthews to Richard Perle
