Stating The Obvious

This Dumb Quote Of The Day comes comes courtesy of Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, on why 30-year senator, long-time member of the establishment elite and opportunistic Democratic convert Arlen Specter lost his bid for a sixth term to relative outsider Joe Sestak:

“In fairness to Arlen,” Mr. Rendell said, “if the economy was ok and there was no anti-incumbent wave, this wouldn’t have been a close election.”

Keeping in mind the fact that Arlen Specter is one of those responsible for the horrible economy, Rendell might as well have said:

"In fairness to my client, if he had not actually committed this crime he probably would have gotten off."

Yes, Mr. Rendell, had Senator Specter actually been a good senator, he may well have won this election.
