And The QOTD Belongs To: Left Wing Cracker

Steve Steffens to Steve Cohen:

I understand the term used often by our hero Ted Kennedy, that "the perfect is the enemy of the good". However, in this case, I’d like to turn that spin around and say that, in the instance of the public option, half-assed and inadequate is the enemy of the necessary and the acceptable.

I’m keeping that one close at hand.  I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot of that "perfect is the enemy of the good" as an excuse for not doing something that 76% of the country wants done.
