This Week In Quotes: 9/20-9/26

May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases. — Allan Brauer, the communications chair of the Democratic Party of Sacramento County to Ted Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter

Senate Republicans should be asking themselves why Cruz and Rand Paul, two newcomers to the Senate of decidedly different temperaments, are being talked of as credible candidates in the presidential primaries of 2016? Answer: Both are clear in their convictions, unapologetic about them, and willing to break some china to achieve them. And that part of America upon which the GOP depends most is increasingly frustrated and angry with those who run the national party. — Pat Buchanan

Part of what’s so problematic with Washington is how many Republicans want a show vote to pretend to their constituents they’re fighting for what they say they’re fighting for, rather than actually fighting for it and actually winning. In both parties, you’ve got entrenched politicians who have barely veiled contempt for the American people. They think their voters are gullible rubes – and you give them a little ‘show vote,’ you tell them, ‘Hey, I’m totally with you,’ then they go to Washington and they don’t actually do what they say. — Ted Cruz

But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family [that] cared about me, who has a well-read background, I f**king conjugate. — Samuel L. Jackson

The Republican establishment resists President Obama and his agenda only when it knows that resistance is futile, token and sure to be inconsequential — when it’s good for a campaign commercial about how hard the GOP is working to undo Obamacare, not when it’s about actually working hard to undo Obamacare. — Andrew McCarthy

Anyone that’s familiar with the Bible, anything like that…When Jesus said that you’re going straight to Hell if you didn’t treat the lesser of his brothers and sisters…and what did he say? He said he was hungry, that you didn’t give him food stamps, he was thirsty, that you didn’t purify the water, that he was naked, and you didn’t give him Social Security. — Charlie Rangel

Some of this Tea Party anger is racist. And that having a non-black person on the ticket will diffuse it to some degree. — Cokie Roberts
