Quote of the year

It was late August. I was on my way home from the DNC in Denver. Since I was traveling, I hadn't been paying attention to the news. I caught a picture of Sarah Palin on CNN, and thot to myself "Did John McCain really choose her as his VP?", but didn't have time to watch it and confirm. Then, as I was walking into my apartment, my brother Ted called me. I had been staying with him in Denver. Right off the bat, he asked me this question:
"Who the hell is Sarah Palin?"
Of course, we all now know the answer to that question. But the confusion and anger generated by that choice of McCain's is, I think, perfectly captured in my brother's question. Which is why it is, for me, the quote of the year.
