QUOTE OF THE DAY

Best of the Web Today reports that at a recent Washington Press Club Foundation congressional dinner:

John McCain, Republican maverick, former POW and Vietnam War hero, cracked in his speech that if “Washington is a Hollywood for ugly people,” then, considering the remarks coming out of Tinseltown about Iraq, “Hollywood is a Washington for the simpleminded.”

Considering what P.J. O’Rourke once said about the Senate, those are biting remarks indeed.
