My Favorite Political Quote of the Year


It’s early, but kudos to IR State Bureau reporter Charles Johnson for getting the single most honest quote from a politician this year:

Ex-Secretary of State Brad Johnson, whom McCulloch unseated in 2008, is eyeing the office.
“I still very much feel called to public service and very much want to enter that arena in 2012,” Johnson said. “Certainly the secretary of state would be one of those offices that would be on the list. I left a lot of work unfinished there.”

Indeed you did, Mr. Johnson.
