Quote of the day

Dick Morris is not exactly a master of self-awareness

From an interview that the National Review's Kathryn Jean Lopez did with former Clinton advisor Dick Morris: 

KJL: Are we witnessing a Clintons comeback?

DM: No. Bill is probably just delighted to be relevant again.

The irony of that statement coming from Morris is just amazing. He's made a fairly lucrative career for himself out of hating both Bill and Hillary Clinton ever since he resigned as campaign manager of then-President Clinton's 1996 reelection campaign when his involvement with a prostitute became public. Really, the fact that the Clintons continue to be relevant is what makes him at all relevant -- especially after he penned a book predicting a 2008 presidential election battle between Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice.
