This Week In Quotes: May 14-May 20

At some point, some high-profile Arizona pol really should call the bluff of sanctuary cities by offering to release captured illegals into their custody in lieu of deporting them. If Gavin Newsom and Mike Bloomberg and Antonio Villaraigosa are all so hot to welcome the “undocumented,” fantastic: Arizona’s got an endless supply and will be happy to provide however many to San Francisco and New York and L.A. that they’d like. — Allahpundit

It Would Be Good If Obama Could Be a Dictator for a Few Years. — Woody Allen

It’s not my style, but I see no political reward for moderation in any form these days. If I were a political consultant – for either party – I’d tell my candidate to be as polarizing and as radical as possible. That’s what the country wants. — David Brooks

There’s no such thing as radical Islam. — Alan Colmes

Your job, Republicans, is not to go on Fox News and whisper sweet nothings in conservatives’ ears. Your job is to repeal the Obama agenda. Raising expectations so high that a 30-seat Republican pickup will seem like a loss is not helping. — Ann Coulter

As Pat Caddell says, Democrats are whores, but they expect to be paid; Republicans’ names are scrawled on the bathroom wall: “For a good time, call the GOP!” — Ann Coulter

I’ve been where these girls are. I can tell every single girl out there who sleeps around with abandon that there is one thing that will stick with you forever: you will regret it. There will come a day where you will meet that man, and you will wish you could take it all back. Giving yourself away to any stranger you barely not is not empowering. It’s degrading. — Cassy Fiano

A president presides over the economy; he doesn’t drive. — Charles Krauthammer

Well, I’m sort of offended when the president of Mexico says, criticizing the Arizona law: ‘It’s placing our people in the face of discrimination.’ If they’re his people, what are they doing in the United States? If they’re his people, why did they leave Mexico, abandon his country, to live under the jurisdiction and the laws of the United States? — Charles Krauthammer

Don’t doubt for a minute that, if they thought they could get away with it, they would ban guns and ban ammunition and gut the Second Amendment. — Sarah Palin

President Obama is beginning to say reliably disconcerting things in public, from his offhand dismissals of longtime foreign allies to his recent assertion in Illinois: “I do think at a certain point that you’ve made enough money.” The Scrapbook would like to have listened in on the clarifying telephone call after that one between Obama and supporter/contributor Warren “$62 Billion and Counting” Buffett. — The Scrapbook

The court is quite willing to accept that a 17-year-old who pulls the trigger on a firearm can demonstrate sufficient depravity and irredeemability to be denied reentry into society, but insists that a 17-year-old who rapes an 8-year-old and leaves her for dead does not. The question of what acts are ‘deserving’ of what punishments is bound so tightly with questions of morality and social conditions as to make it, almost by definition, a question for legislative resolution. — Clarence Thomas

The bottom line is that Obama, the Justice Department, and the entire executive branch are on Mexico’s side in this dispute. On the other hand, the majority of the American people are with Arizona; a recent Wall Street Journal poll found that 64 percent of Americans support the law. — Byron York
