This Week In Quotes: June 3rd – June 9

If the tea party is so racist, how come when they have straw polls the black guy keeps winning? — Herman Cain

I believe homosexuality is a sin because I’m a Bible-believing Christian, I believe it’s a sin. But I know that some people make that choice. That’s their choice. — Herman Cain

Every time some lib-bro slags on Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin for being ugly or a c*nt or whatever, I am fully aware that he’s only not doing so to me now not because he believes I’m equal but because he thinks I agree — which I don’t. — Megan Carpentier, Executive editor of Raw Story

I wouldn’t [run for president] if I were in (Palin’s) shoes. I think it would be the worst job imaginable, both running and holding the office. — Ann Coulter

What’s important about next year, I hope, is that we have an honest conversation about reconciling our means with our ends. And, I — I believe that the American people will show that they are still fit for self-governance. — Mitch Daniels

I think (Palin) could win. She wouldn’t be my first choice if I were a Republican but I think she could win. Any time you have a contest – particularly when unemployment is as high as it is – nobody gets a walkover. Whoever the Republicans nominate, including people like Sarah Palin, whom the inside-the-Beltway crowd dismisses – my view is if you get the nomination of a major party, you can win the presidency, I don’t care what people write about you inside the Beltway. — Howard Dean

The experience of both Rome and Britain suggests that it is hard to stop the rot once it has set in, so here are the a few of the warning signs of trouble ahead: military overstretch, a widening gulf between rich and poor, a hollowed-out economy, citizens using debt to live beyond their means, and once-effective policies no longer working. The high levels of violent crime, epidemic of obesity, addiction to pornography and excessive use of energy may be telling us something: the US is in an advanced state of cultural decadence. — Larry Elliott

“My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.” — Lupe Fiasco

So what is it? What’s the problem? (Palin’s) solid on social issues. She’s solid on fiscal issues. She’s solid against these subsidies against big companies — in other words, she is not a corporatist. She’s not a crony or a believer in that. She’s solid on taxes and spending. I’m just confused. She’s solid on Israel. She’s solid on the military. She’s solid with respect to our allies. Is there some big issue that’s disqualifying? What — because the liberals don’t like her? I’m getting sick and tired, as I said yesterday, last week and I’ve said over the months — I’m getting sick and tired of these smears by Krauthammer against her. — Mark Levin

The Clintons are deeply unhappy about the situation and with Mr. Weiner, people who had been told of their thinking said. Mr. Clinton declined to comment. — The New York Times

It is hard to imagine a more demeaning statement about black America than labeling demands that all voters show a photo ID anti-black.

This is easily demonstrated. Imagine if some Democratic politician had announced that demanding a photo ID at the voting booth was an attempt to keep Jewish Americans from voting. No one would understand what the person was talking about. But why not? Jews vote almost as lopsidedly Democrat as do blacks. So why weren’t Jews included in liberal objections to voter ID laws?

We all know the answer. Jews are generally considered intelligent and therefore no one would assume that obtaining a photo ID was demanding too much of even poor Jews (yes, there are poor Jews). Therefore, one can only infer that the argument that demanding photo ID for voting will disenfranchise many blacks suggests that many blacks lack the capacity to obtain a photo ID. — Dennis Prager

I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that. — Mitt Romney

You know what, man? I am going to literally – if (Palin) gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready – because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country. — Christopher Titus

[I]f you go back to the year 2000, when we had an obvious disaster and – and saw that our voting process needed refinement, and we did that in the America Votes Act and made sure that we could iron out those kinks, now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally – and very transparently – block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic candidates than Republican candidates. And it’s nothing short of that blatant. — Debbie Wasserman Schultz

It’s the political class doing all this relentless “work for the American people” that’s turned this country into the brokest nation in the history of the planet, killed the American Dream and left the American people headed for a future poised somewhere between the Weimar Republic and Mad Max. So, if it’s a choice between politicians getting back to work for the American people or Tweeting their privates round the planet, I say, Tweet on, MacDuff. Tough on our young college ladies. But, as Queen Victoria advised her daughter on her wedding night, lie back and think of England. Download and think of America. — Mark Steyn

“[Andrew Breitbart]…I want that bastard destroyed. Now.[…] when I say I want him destroyed I am not kidding. I want to see him penniless, homeless, begging on the street for money to buy food[…] he can die on the street so far as I’m concerned[…] let you and your rich ass Brentwood family suffer. — Tim Wise
