Look, as the old truism goes: Any organization which is not expressly right-wing will become left-wing over time. The reason is personnel; liberals don’t like actually making or doing things; they prefer to deal in the abstract, hands-clean. They like to advocate, or support, or take some people’s money and give it to some other people. So the constant stream of personnel seeking employment in these organizations’ bureaucracies is lefty, and at some point they reach critical mass and can begin blackballing any applicant who’s not lefty enough. — Ace[1]

You’re a woman, you better be careful about saying who I carry water for. — Bob Beckel[2] threatens Pamela Geller

I’m here to tell you that on November the 3rd, the Democrats will retain a majority in the House, a majority in the Senate. — Joe Biden[3]

If I hear one more republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them. — Joe Biden[4]

Ironically perhaps, I’ve often used a Sobran observation to explain why I have a greater affinity to Israel than to the Muslim world after 9/11: Watching a death-match fight on Animal Planet once, Joe said he found himself instinctively rooting for the mammal over the reptile. — Ann Coulter[5]

(Liz Cheney’s) father and her father’s puppet George at the very least allowed, at the very worst engineered the worst attack on this country since the War of 1812. — Mike Malloy[6]

So, (Obama’s) got his hands wrapped around our throat–to use a Gulf oil–his foot on our throat, to use a Gulf-oil-spill metaphor, and, holding out a few crumbs in his hand and saying eat this. Lift the lawsuit, Mr. President, and drop that thing. Let Arizona take its leadership role like it’s willing to do. We’ll help. We’ll do more good with that than anything else that’s going on right now. Other states are getting on board. And then give us the resources we need to get this thing done. — Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz[7]

What issues are only women’s issues? — Pamela Gorman[8]

In just four days, more black children die at the hands of the abortion clinic then the KKK killed in its entire history. — Jerome Hudson[9]

As part of their dedication to causes but not truths, modern journalists also simply refuse to cover certain things. — Mark Judge[10]

Of the 39 black Democrats in the House, all but two represent districts where blacks are a majority or plurality. One other black Democratic contender is running in a white majority district. So in this election, Republicans are running more blacks in white majority districts than the Democrats are. Shouldn’t that be taken into consideration when accusations of racism are being hurled about? — Jack Kelly[11]

You want us to help you, the first thing I would suggest is enough of the hippie punching. We’re the girl you’ll take under the bleachers but you won’t be seen with in the light of day. — Lefty blogger Susan Madrak to David Axelrod

New Rule: The next rich person who publicly complains about being vilified by the Obama administration must be publicly vilified by the Obama administration. — Bill Maher[12]

Any lesser definition (of being rich) –particularly one that defines the term as someone making a living in the low $100,000’s–smacks of overstretched fiscal envy: the kind of attitude seen in socialistic states where the overarching principle of equality supersedes each person’s individual drive for financial freedom, self-determination, and achievement.

It’s a dangerous principle with which to infect a free-market economy: Don’t work too hard, climb too high, or earn too much. Otherwise, the government will punish you. Don’t do too much, or you’ll be wasting your time anyway because the government will just take the earnings from your added productivity. — Rachel Marsden[13]

The feminists of the sixties are the least feminine women I know. — Lisa Mei Norton[14]

If they’re (GOP) successful in doing that, they’ve already said they’re going to go back to the same policies that were in place during the Bush administration. That means that we are going to have just hand-to-hand combat up here on Capitol Hill. — Barack Obama[15]

I was a little disappointed in Ed Shultz [sic], who at the end of his talk said, “God bless the troops who are keeping us safe.” And I thought, and Daniel later echoed, did he have to say that? Do we have to parrot rightwing memes to set the patriot heart-strings a quiver? With all the gut-wrenching problems that face us and the dire consequences of doing the same old nothing, must we resort to fairy tales and bull—- to inspire the masses? — One Pissed Off Liberal, Daily Kos[16]
