Quote-a-palooza

“Here comes the orator! With his flood of words, and his drop of reason.” – Benjamin Franklin

“People who make careers out of helping others- sometimes at great sacrifice, often not- usually don’t like to hear that those others might get along fine, might even get along better, without their help.” – John Holt

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

“It is essential to the triumph of reform that it should never succeed.” – William Hazlitt

“What is amazing this year is how many people have bought the fundamentally childish notion that, if you don’t like the way things are going, the answer is to write a blank check for generic ‘change,’ empowering someone chosen not on the basis of any track record but on the basis of his skill with words.” – Thomas Sowell

“So Senator Obama and his campaign decided that it would be inappropriate to visit wounded soldiers in Germany while touring Europe as a candidate for the presidency. Senator McCain hit this one right on the head: it is never inappropriate to visit our wounded men and women in uniform.” – Bobby Eberle

“Barack Obama represents an obnoxiously elitist attitude that reeks of paternalistic government…” – Kathryn Lopez

“Sen. Obama owes it to the public to let us know how much of our hard-earned money he, in his wisdom, believes we have a moral obligation to give away to poor people around the world- and how much of our money that he has a moral obligation to extract from our wages forcefully, through federal taxation.” – Tony Blankley

“The time may be coming when our lunatic environmental policies are swept away by a rising tide of common sense.” – Michael Barone

“Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted ‘present’ nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself.” – Charles Krauthammer

“Obama was in Germany [last week], and 200,000 people showed up. There was so many Germans shouting and screaming that France surrendered just in case.” – Craig Ferguson

Jay Leno: Barack Obama is back from his big European tour. Did you see him in Europe? People were cheering him, holding up signs, blowing him kisses. And that was just the American media covering the story. … Barack Obama was on “Meet the Press” Sunday. John McCain was on a new show called, “I Wish I Could Meet the Press.” … Polls show Obama more popular than McCain in Germany, France, and Great Britain. However, McCain leads in Mesopotamia, Gaul and the Holy Roman Empire. So, it’s pretty balanced. … In world news, I guess you’ve heard Barack Obama [was] elected Chancellor of Germany. … You can tell the French are still a little gun shy. After speaking in front of 200,000 Germans, when Obama arrived in France, they said, “You came alone, right?” … You know, they said on the news earlier [this week] that this political campaign has only 100 days left. Only! Anybody complaining that this thing was dragging out? … I don’t know what’s less likely, Barack Obama getting enough experience in 100 days, or John McCain living another 100 days. … The National Enquirer caught former presidential candidate John Edwards sneaking out of his girlfriend’s hotel room at the 2:40 in the morning. See, Edwards got caught ’cause the reporters were there waiting for him…[I]f Edwards didn’t want to get caught, he should have met this woman at the hotel where John McCain was staying. There are no reporters. … If this story turns out to be true, there go his chances at becoming vice president. He could still be governor of New York. … And in Puerto Rico, it [was] Constitution Day [Friday]. So, that’s where the Constitution went. I knew we weren’t using it anymore.
