Pre-Noon Yearly Kos Quote of the Day


"My record for predictions about Iraq is poor."—Peter Beinart, asked why supported the war and now supports bugging out.

Beinart's apologies for his war stance have been earnest and beautifully written, but watching him stammer in front of a room that looks his judging panel from Hell—a sea of smartassed bloggers and flown-in D.C. liberal pundits—is pretty painful. It is, however, extremely polite. Yearly Kos attendees seem to sow enough oats in the rip-roaring panels that they don't need to heckle or hiss at the more disagreeable experts.

Matthew Yglesias is live-blogging the panel.
