Quote of the Day: maybe people won't have to tune in and hear me screeching....
--Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton

Now, granted the senator was talking about a certain YouTube clip of her singing the Star Spangled Banner, badly (no big whoop, since whoever sang it well is probably not on the planet currently, but never mind), and speculating that the now infamous "1984" YouTube bit is a good thing for her because it makes people forget about her singing so poorly. She said that here.

Her self-criticism about "screeching" became specific to me this a.m. as I awoke to the sound of her strident hectoring on NPR, and between the pillow and getting up to let the dogs out, I thought, "This voice is going to wear a gash in my psyche before this campaign is over."

What was she talking about this morning? I don't know and frankly don't want to know. She was just this side of yelling, raising her voice over the applause of a crowd, maybe, reminding me what a chore the 2008 Democratic National Convention is going to be.
