Quote-a-palooza

“The public cannot be too curious concerning the characters of public men.” – Samuel Adams

“Just once, I’d like to see a politician caught with his pants down (so to speak) not trot out his wronged wife to stand beside him as he issues his mea culpa… I guess the point of the exercise is to show voters that Spitzer is not such a creep that his wife won’t stand by him. Problem is, by dragging his wife before the public, Client-9 shows himself to be an even bigger creep.” – Debra Saunders

“Many in the media refer to Eliot Spitzer as some moral hero who fell from grace. Spitzer was never a moral hero. He was an unscrupulous prosecutor who threw his power around to ruin people, even when he didn’t have any case with which to convict them of anything.” – Thomas Sowell

“The biggest beneficiary of Hillary’s ‘3 a.m.’ ad is – John McCain. Of the three candidates, Americans believe he is best suited to be commander-in-chief by a lopsided margin. Hillary argued that when the tough times come, ‘You have to be ready to make a decision.’ You do, and Hillary isn’t… In truth, neither Obama nor Hillary can name an accomplishment that qualifies them for the office they seek.” – Ben Johnson

“McCain’s greatest advantage is himself. His life story is compelling and something neither Clinton nor Obama can match. He can own the issue of national security. He must now convince voters that on domestic issues he is better able to manage the economy while reducing the size and cost of government.” – Cal Thomas

“Who ever said that it is the responsibility of government to make life easy?” – Jim Geraghty

“[T]he Constitution is not a living organism. It’s a legal document.” – Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

“The only difference I’ve found in Congress between the Republican and Democratic leadership is that one of them is skinning us from the toes up and the other from the ears down.” – Huey Long

“The tyranny of a multitude is a multiplied tyranny.” – Edmund Burke

“The tendency of democracies is, in all things, to mediocrity.” – James Fenimore Cooper

“A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is.” – Karl Krauss

“What gives the new despotism its peculiar effectiveness is indeed its liaison with humanitarianism, but beyond this fact its capacity for entering into the smallest details of human life.” – Robert Nisbet

Jay Leno: New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer has admitted that he has been involved in a prostitution ring. This is the same man who when he was attorney general went after the prostitution rings. So apparently for not giving him good service. … [This] means Hillary Clinton [is] now only the second angriest wife in the state of New York. … Neither Barack nor Hillary can win the nomination outright. You know, because it’s so close. So Hillary’s kind of caught between Barack and a hard place. … Technically, neither of them can win. It shows you how bad it’s gotten for the Democrats. Forget winning the general election, they can’t even win their own election. … You know, there’s talk in some Democratic circles of letting the states of Michigan and Florida re-vote. Today, Al Gore said, “Oh, now you think of this! Great!” … They’re talking about a re-vote primary where people would mail in their ballots. That’s a great idea, combine the reliability of the people in Florida who count the ballots with the efficiency of the Post Office. What could go wrong there?
