The Envelope, Please

Media Research Center's Notable Quoteables for 2009 are out. The Quote of the year is one of the most outrageous statements one could imagine out of the press:

"Mary Jo wasn't a right-wing talking point or a negative campaign slogan....We don't know how much Kennedy was affected by her death, or what she'd have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history....[One wonders what] Mary Jo Kopechne would have had to say about Ted's death, and what she'd have thought of the life and career that are being (rightfully) heralded. Who knows — maybe she'd feel it was worth it."
— Discover magazine deputy web editor Melissa Lafsky, who formerly worked on the New York Times’s Freakonomics blog, writing at the Huffington Post, August 27.

The same quote earned the Long Live Camelot Award for Lionizing Ted Kennedy.

There's lots more categories. Check 'em out.
