Obama is God!

Bush is laughing about the death toll in Iraq

“Today George Bush is laughing again. Over 1,000 Americans have lost their lives. Americans are being beheaded. Iraq is a mess and they think this is a joke. It is clear they have no idea how to protect our troops, but they will do anything to protect their jobs.”

- John Edwards

Not since 9/11 have I experienced anything even kind of close to this

Not since 9/11 have I experienced anything even kind of close to this.”

Reagan Ignored Ghettos and Gays

“In the plague years of the 1980s — that low decade of denial, indifference, hostility, opportunism and idiocy — government fiddled and medicine diddled, and the media were silent or hysterical. A gerontocratic Ronald Reagan took this [AIDS] plague less seriously than Gerald Ford had taken swine flu. After all, he didn’t need the ghettos and he didn’t want the gays.”

- John Leonard

Hail Bill & Hillary

“If we could be one-hundredth as great as you and Hillary Rodham Clinton have been in the White House, we’d take it right now and walk away winners. … Tell Mrs. Clinton we respect her and we’re pulling for her.”

- Dan Rather

Being Muslim is Grand

“I like the fact that his name is Barack Hussein Obama, and that his father was a Muslim and that his paternal grandmother is a Muslim…There’s a billion people on the planet that are Muslims, and I think that experience is a big deal.”

- Bob Kerrey

Clinton has miraculous presence

“…Clinton is now a historical figure who remains a breathing, walking presence, and when he enters a room of strangers, even those who didn’t vote for him react as if witnessing a small miracle.”

- Matt Bai
