It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry

It’s been a busy one for me, but here’s my favorite quote of the day:

In an interview with Canadian public radio on Sunday, Missouri Rep. and Clinton superdelegate Emanuel Cleaver said he’d be “stunned if [Barack Obama] is not the next president of the United States.” Cleaver, who is black, said the African-American community would like it if he backed Obama, but he wouldn’t feel right if he made the switch. He compared her to a football team that you know isn’t going to win, but you root for it anyway…

I don’t usually do well with sports metaphors, but I’m pretty sure that’s bad.
