Best Quote of 2006
Days away from the Times Square celebrations, Justin Rood at TPMmuckraker (via a reader's tip) finds the best quote of the year.
Move over Will Rogers. Move over Winston Churchill. Move over Sylvester Stallone.
Homeland Security Adviser Fran Townsend, former Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Combating Terrorism, issues a platitude-for-the-ages that future losers and Chicago Cubs fans can embrace for eternity:

Go to Muckraker to find out what "success that hasn't occurred yet" Townsend is babbling about.
