All through the presidential run when I was engaged in it two years ago what I constantly came up against was sort of the elitism of the Republican establishment, the snooty down their nose gee you’re not properly pedigreed you didn’t go to Harvard or Yale. You went to a Christian college and you didn’t run with the cocktail crowd in Manhattan. Well you know what? I think the greatest thing that’s happening in regards to the Tea Party is that it’s reminding the rest of America that ordinary people can make a dramatic difference in this country. — Mike Huckabee

A lot of people still write me e-mails, “Rush, could you please explain Obama to me?” I think I’ve covered the gamut here. But here’s another way of looking at Obama. Imagine. Imagine yourself as an angry, selfish, arrogant, know-it-all teenager who’s protected and coddled at every turn. You fall for every bit of leftist claptrap you hear at school and at home. You fail at everything you try in real life, and then you lie about the failures — and then after all that, you blame it on everybody but yourself, you are getting close to the mind-set of “Barack Hussein Obama! — Rush Limbaugh

I’m doing what most journalists in Washington and New York don’t do: Hold politicians accountable. Our free-enterprise system is under an unprecedented assault, and yet our current media Pooh-Bahs are worried about if they’ve been invited to the latest cocktail party. I don’t care about that stuff. We don’t have a mainstream media in this country anymore. We have a knee pad media. They’d rather slobber over Obama than investigate his corruption. Chuck Todd must’ve gone through 35 pairs of knee pads by now, no? — Jason Mattera

Hey, how about that McDonald’s two blocks from Ground Zero, Bill? That’s killed, that’s killed more people than the nineteen hijackers. — Michael Moore

Why don’t we have words for people like Gingrich and Palin? You know, because they’re essentially our mullahs, you know, our Taliban. We don’t ever really refer to them as, but we should start calling them Cleric Gingrich and Mullah Taliban Palin, or whatever. See how that, see how that fits. Because I think that their, their level of bigotry is so un-American… — Michael Moore

Who would you vote for, the witch or the Marxist? — Bill O’Reilly on the O’Donnell vs. Coons race

We have millions of illegal immigrants, who are doing things we need done in this country. They’re all over my house, doing things, making repairs. I’m sure they’re all over your house. — Colin Powell

The Vietnamese and Republicans are trying to take away this seat, this seat that we have done so much for our community..take away this seat from us and give it to this Van Tran. — Loretta Sanchez

I’ve been to dozens of Tea Party rallies. I’ve given at least a half a dozen or more speeches. I have not yet to find the first racist comment or the first person who approaches me from a racist perspective. I will speak very clearly here. Racism is a part of a lot of things in our country. Good people are the predominant fact of our country. I simply don’t get it. There are good people and bad people in all organizations fundamentally however, when you look at the basis of the Tea Party it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with an economic recovery. It has to do with limiting the role of our government in our lives. It has to do with free markets. How do you fight that? The only way you fight that is to create an emotional distraction called racism. It doesn’t have to be real. It can be rhetoric but it gets the media focusing on something other than the truth of why the Tea Party is resonating so well with the average person. — Tim Scott
