Jake Tapper defends Senator Barack Obama's staff.
Oddly, he's defending them from Senator Barack Obama.

This will do for quote of the day: it's the culmination of an entertaining little post about the number of times that the junior Senator from Illinois has courageously explained how a particular gaffe, mistake, lie, oopsie, and/or omission was clearly the responsibility of a staff member* (he counts 14, and the primary's not even over yet). Tapper can't help but speak truth to power, here:
And for the record, yet again, let me state that I find Sen. Obama's staff unfailingly competent and polite, courteous and efficient, and I once again express my regret that Sen. Obama does apparently not feel the same way.
I'm not going to even try to beat that one, Jake.
*Just like John F Kennedy! Remember how Jack wriggled out of the Bay of Pigs?
"As president," he said, "I bear sole responsibility."
...oops. Oh, well, it's not like progressives read history anyway.
