For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: “It might have been!”
-John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892)
“I was not allowed to talk about things like that because those elitists — those who are the brainiacs in the GOP machine running John McCain’s campaign at the time — said that the media would eat us alive if we brought up these things.
What that got us, this kind of complacency and self-censoring of a campaign where we weren’t allowed to tell the truth about who this candidate was — Barack Obama. What it got us was a list of these scandals.”
