Tidbits for Political Junkies with Short Attention Spans & Hearty Appetites

Name that source

Who said the following?

"The arrogance, inconsistency, and unreliability of the administration’s diplomacy have undermined American alliances, alienated friends, and emboldened our adversaries."

"Gerrymandered congressional districts are an affront to democracy and an insult to the voters. We oppose that and any other attempt to rig the electoral process."

"Nor should the intelligence community be made the scapegoat for political misjudgments."

"The current administration has casually sent American armed forces on ... missions without clear goals, realizable objectives, favorable rules of engagement, or defined exit strategies.

Was it Ted Kennedy? John Kerry? Wes Clark? Richard Clarke?

Nope. None of the above. Every last word of the preceeding quotes comes directly from the Republican Party's 2000 Election Platform. Honestly, I'm not making this up.

For more, see Matt Stoller's excellent post on the subject, "Let's Base Our Party Platform on Irony."
