In Sickness And In Health

I missed this quote from Kennedy scionette and California first lady Maria Shriver in 1992, but it didn’t escape Tammy Bruce’s notice:

“When you marry someone, you marry them for sickness and health. [Republican politics] are Arnold’s sickness.” — Shriver on Schwarzenegger in the June 1992 edition of McCall’s magazine.

Shriver was employed by NBC from 1989 to 2004. (Add her quote to this list.) Their current nightly anchorman has compared America’s Navy SEALs and even its founding fathers to terrorists. Or least been “aggressively misunderstood” to have done so.

(Incidentally, I hope that Maria feels her husband’s made a remarkable recovery from his “sickness” in his second term.)
