Quote of the Day: the Thurbert Baker edition

During the interview, Chris Matthews asked Attorney General Baker if he was afraid of Gov. Perdue. Baker was very diplomatic in his answer, but I would have love to seen him lean back in his chair, cock his head to the side and say, "Ain't nobody afraid of that punk Perdue!"

That would have been epic.
