Sentence of the Day

More damaging to the common weal than internecine brawling is the sheer amount of pontificating ("America loves a winner," "America loves the underdog") and prognosticating and chest puffing that is engaged in by the cast of dubious characters who are given a forum on cable-news programs and run around from network to network like free-range chickens.--Nancy Franklin "Convention Wisdom: Cable news at the gathering of the clans" (in the Sept 15. issue of The New Yorker)
