This Sounds About Right

An astute analysis of where things stand right now from Not Buck.

The bit on Prof. Sabato is interesting:

The Real Larry Sabato also takes a hit from this. For some reason, he decided to wade into the fray and has now become part of the story. As Chris Matthews pointed out on Hardball a few minutes ago, the good professor needs to put up or shut up about what he knows about George Allen. Cryptic answers don't cut it.

A number of reporters I've talked to also lose, because the Sage of Charlottesville is no longer a dispassionate observer. As one reporter put it, "F***! Now where am I going to get a political scientist to quote?"

How about Bob Holsworth? He's always given good quote and he's right here in Richmond (saving the reporters' respective papers a nickel on those long distance calls).

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
