Quotable: Martin Bashir Zaps S.E. Cupp — AGAIN!

"S.E., YOU FAILED TO MENTION THE THREE BOTTLES OF BURGUNDY YOU DRANK AS WELL" ... Martin Bashir LOVES to needle Sarah Elizabeth, as she finished her comments about sharing a meal while riding out the storm with her CYCLE pals, and the realization that the "bloodsport" of presidential politics isn't the most important (sniff, sniff) thing ... "family is." Sarah Elizabeth is a work in progress, and, I'm convinced, a closet progressive. President Obama had a message for S.E. (and Paulie The Objectivist Munster, too) in his Rolling Stone interview:

"Ayn Rand is one of those things that a lot of us, when we were 17 or 18 and feeling misunderstood, we'd pick up," Obama said. "Then, as we get older, we realize that a world in which we're only thinking about ourselves and not thinking about anybody else, in which we're considering the entire project of developing ourselves as more important than our relationships to other people and making sure that everybody else has opportunity — that that's a pretty narrow vision."

"It's not one that, I think, describes what's best in America," Obama said about Rand's vision. "Unfortunately, it does seem as if sometimes that vision of a 'you're on your own' society has consumed a big chunk of the Republican Party."

Time to grow up, Sarah Elizabeth.
