    I recommended & tipped a diary today by common mass which said complained about the lack of quotes in another diary -

    I wonder if 'Chick' should be in quotes in the current diary.

      not the campaign's and thus not a direct quote of anyone.

      Perhaps you are thinking of the use of quotation marks to indicate irony or special meaning as, for example, something like this:  Palin shared her "vast knowledge of Russia" with the television audience.

      Personally, I don't like the use of the word here at all, with or without quotation marks unless someone from the Romney camp actually is quoted as having used it.  When I saw it, I looked back to see who had written the piece.  I suppose we're supposed to be okay with Kalli doing it as we know where her heart and politics are on matters related to women, but still, I don't like it.

      The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain, is floating in mid-air, until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life. Jane Addams

      are we really going to go there?

      Watch Mike B. obliterate that argument:
