Twitter PR Team: “At twitter, we believe that the open exchange of information can have a positive global impact. Every day we are inspired by stories of people using Twitter to help make the world a better place in unexpected ways.”
Coach Hoke: “I don’t like twitter. Why would anyone want to know I’m at McDonalds eating a cheeseburger…If I want to talk to you, I’ll call you up and talk.” – At today’s Signing Day press conference.
“While the left wants to tear down and destroy all that is good in America, and replace it with an ideology if [sic] evil, the Tea Party movement is based on love … Real Americans love their country and their neighbors. The Tea Party is not motivated by hatred as the left is.”–Judson Phillips, Tea Party Nation
“Our consensus is that we go out there listening to the American people. It’s about jobs, it’s about reducing the deficit and it’s about fighting for the middle class. I look forward to doing that with this great leadership team.”
Sounds like someone’s seeing Pink elephants!
“I think every speech should begin with a shot of tequila.”
- Carly Fiorina, Senate candidate from the state of California
Well, that finally provides and explanation for her advertisements:
Equality is the prime rib of America.
-Lady Gaga, at a Maine rally calling for the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
Commit this to memory, and repeat it every day until the election:
Our position is tax cuts for the middle class. Theirs is tax cuts for millionaires.

This man is kind of insane.
â€œI tend to be morose sometimesâ€
~ Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on life. The New York Times has a fascinated piece detailing the Supreme Court’s most guarded and silent justice at a recent dinner hosted by the Bill of Rights Institute. Justice Thomas went on to reminisce about the good ol’ days of prayer in schools and marching around the schoolhouse with a flag and crucifix.
Noteworthy, Justice Thomas also revealed that he is not really that into rights. Thomas’s constitutional philosophy is that our “rights” must be adequately countered by our “responsibilities” and “duties.” He believes that sometime we just complain too much and have far too many rights.
To me… that is insane.
Republican Texas State Representative Betty Brown during a committee hearing on a voter-identification bill, a representative from the Organization of Chinese Americans:
Can’t you see that this [having an Americanized name] is something that would make it a lot easier for you and the people who are poll workers. If you could adopt a name just for identification purposes that’s easier for Americans to deal with?
My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.
~ President Obama, quoted by Politico, in a behind-the-scenes account of the president’s recent meeting with Wall Street CEOs.
After watching David Paterson, Governor of New York, on the Colbert Report last year, I took a liking to him — not because he reminded of a big teddy bear, either. That man is sassy. Anyway, the dear guv today remarked on Rush Limbaugh’s emphatic declaration that he is leaving New York because of the “millionaires’ tax,” which taxes those making $250,000 and over.Â (His condo is up on the market now.) Funny, since Limbaugh spends very little time in New York.
If I knew that would be the result, I would’ve thought about the taxes earlier.
