Quotation Of The Day: The Political Circus May Well Get Weirder Edition

From Reihan Salam writing at that noted left-wing journal (sarcasm alert) National Review Online:

But it is just as easy for me to imagine a popular Republican president facing ferocious attacks from a minority of opportunistic legislators aided by allied independent expenditure groups.
