"I'm the Democratic mayor of Youngstown, a city that traditionally gives 60 to 75 percent of its vote to the Democratic presidential candidate. Growing up with the legacies of FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK formed my core Democratic values. They had the courage of their convictions, their word was their bond, and the entire world knew it... Senator Kerry reminds me of the politician who when asked his position on the war in Iraq stands tall and responds loudly: 'One-half of my friends support the war in Iraq and one-half of my friends oppose the war in Iraq. And I'm not afraid to say that I support my friends'" -- Mayor George M. McKelvey, of Youngstown, Ohio, writing in the Boston Globe on why he is endorsing President Bush.
"Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage." --Winston Churchill
"One lesson we can learn from the abortion debate is that having the courts decide will lead neither to true resolution of the issue nor to consensus among the American people. Courts should not be issuing policy edicts.... The people should speak -- and they are doing so through their ballots. ... I am saying that my view -- that marriage should be limited to the union of one man and one woman -- doesn't make me a Neanderthal. And even if you think it does, what's the harm in letting the people -- rather than courts that often come far from a.) reflecting our views and b.) doing what's best for America -- decide?" --Rebecca Hagelin
"American liberals are making the same mistake in the war on terror that they made during the Cold War. They trust anti-American voices around the world more than they trust the American people. They believe that our responsibilities can be shoved onto the backs of other countries that will not help us. (Although even Kerry has had to admit...that France and Germany will not send troops in Iraq even if he wins on November 2.) They believe in a moral equivalence between the United States and its adversaries. They were wrong in the 1980's, and they are wrong today. That is why Kerry cannot articulate a credible plan to win the war on terrorism." --Laura Ingraham
Holy crap. I don't know what to say about this yet.
