Klein to McCain: Shutty! (QOTW)

Joe Klein on John McCain's non-stop blathering about how Barack Obama isn't sticking his nose far enough into Iran's business:
"Be quiet," said Klein. "You don't need to do this. You know? You know what you're doing is a self-indulgent at this point. Sen. McCain, if he's going to talk about this, should also talk about the fact that the United States supported Saddam Hussein in the Iran/Iraq war for eight years. Every one of those protesters out in the streets, every last one of them believes the United States supplied Saddam Hussein with the poison gas that has debilitated tens of thousands of Iranian men."

A friend in the White House? Not really. My QOTW.

Civil lawyer Emma Ruby-Sachs on Obama's "memo" giving two--count 'em, two--"benefits" to gay federal employees:

"I hate to be the one to explain a rights struggle to the first black President, but the equality movement is not a grab bag of rights. You don't get to reach in and see which prize you've won. Each of the rights discussed above--the right to benefits for your partner, the right to serve openly in the military and the right to access the same tax breaks and immigration privileges given to heterosexual couples--should be granted. Immediately. Granting one does not absolve trespass over the other rights."

QOTW, Installment 8, sort of

I know that a headline isn't really a quote, but this one was too good to pass up:

"Gay Penguins Raising Abandoned Chick"

QOTW Installment 7 Override

Lame call. My bad. Here's the real winner.

Actor Craig T. Nelson to I-Sure-Hope-He's-Acting Glenn Beck on American capitalism. (FOX "news" rantscript here.)
"What happened to society? I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. I've been on food stamps and welfare, did anybody help me out? No. No. They gave me hope, they gave me encouragement, and they gave me a vision."
What the frak were they serving in the green room?
