The Dean

Josh Marshall notes that mucking up all of our international relationships, particularly NATO, isn't actually a good thing (why is it even necessary for someone to point this out?).

But, who cares about that. Let's talk about David Broder, the moral center of the Washington press corps who, as Josh reminds us:

Back in 1998, in a notoriously fatuous article, Sally Quinn quoted David Broder saying, "He [Clinton] came in here and he trashed the place."

Josh leaves off the end of the quote. It's more telling in its full version:

"He came in here and he trashed the place and it's not his place"

That liberal media.
