“I was attacked, Dan was attacked, CBS was attacked 24 hours a day by people who hid behind screen names. I may be a flawed journalist, but I put my name on things.”
Mary Mapes, investigative reporter who can’t figure out bloggers’ names

“Forgive Rosenhaus. Being the agent for [Terrell] Owens is, in a football context, like being the personal publicist for Satan.”

“If was a general manager, I don’t care if he wanted to come in and play for the league minimum, I would not have him in my locker room. I wouldn’t want him around my organization, my city or anything. I would not welcome him. I do not respect him. I think he’s a selfish jerk. All he thinks about is money and himself.”
Rodney Harrison, on Terrell Owens

“The only reason I dare writing this blog is because I have absolutely no sense of embarrassment. Most people would be horrified at the prospect of proving their ignorance to thousands of readers. My attitude is more along the lines of I have thousands of readers? Cool.”

“We have desert tortoises and beautiful paintings of flora and fauna. These punks come along and deface it. I’m saying maybe you put them on TV and cut off a thumb. That may be the right thing to do.”

“[W]e kept hearing all this stuff ever since September 11th, you know, the Muslim street is going to explode in anger. Well, it finally did, and it was in Paris, not in the Middle East.”

“The only reasons for these facilities are to subvert domestic and foreign law. And no one gives a shit. And it does not makes us safer to have a clandestine service indiscriminately detaining, abusing, and torturing people around the world in secret prisons.”

“In my administration, we will ask not only what is legal, but what is right — not just what the lawyers allow, but what the public deserves.”

“First, we must always maintain the highest ethical standards. We must always ask ourselves not only what is legal, but what is right. There is no goal of government worth accomplishing if it cannot be accomplished with integrity.”

“The best result of this latest scandal, and the hypocrisy and finger-pointing exhibited on both sides, would be for voters to say, ‘A pox on both your houses,’ reject the scandal culture and gotcha politics of both parties and seek new politics of common cause, collegiality and the public interest. The alternative is that most people will conclude that in American politics today the only standard is the double standard, and the cycles of conflict and rancor will continue.”

“One of the reasons some of us have felt discomfort regarding President Bush’s leadership the past year or so is that he makes more than the usual number of decisions that seem to be looking for trouble. He makes startling choices, as in the Miers case. But you don’t have to look for trouble in life, it will find you, especially when you’re president. It knows your address. A White House is a castle surrounded by a moat, and the moat is called trouble, and the rain will come and the moat will rise. You should buy some boots, do your work, hope for the best.”

“I think that the Republican Party fairly recently has been taken over by the Christian conservatives, by the Christian right. I don’t think that this is a permanent condition, but I think this has happened, and that it’s divisive for the country.”
John Danforth, Episcopal priest and former Republican Senator

“Conservatives live in fear of being betrayed ideologically. They particularly distrust nonpartisan technocrats — experts — who they suspect will be seduced by the ‘liberal establishment.’ The result, in government, journalism and think tanks alike, is a profusion of second-raters whose chief virtue is that they are undeniably ‘sound.’”

“I have invited Condi to the centre of the world, to Blackburn, and to a real football game rather than to rugby with commercials, which I am told is called American football.”
Jack Straw, British Foreign Secretary

“Finally, any Republican senator who supinely acquiesces in President Bush’s reckless abuse of presidential discretion — or who does not recognize the Miers nomination as such — can never be considered presidential material.”

“And if something comes along that is truly serious, truly serious, something like a nuclear weapon going off in a major American city, or something like a major pandemic, you are going to see the ineptitude of this government in a way that will take you back to the Declaration of Independence. Read it some time again.”

“What I’m saying is that the blogosphere should hold itself to higher standards. Reckless speculation and the dissemination of unfounded rumors should be stigmatized and treated as a stain on a blogger’s reputation (just like it would be for a professional journalist), not treated as a normal part of the process.”

“Fed by what are to me very cheap arguments by RNC spokesmen and independent stalwarts of the administration — chiefly, it seems, Hugh Hewitt — there is now this permanently established belief in some quarters that people around here and elsewhere oppose Miers based purely on bad motives — elitism, cowardice, sexism etc. I find this horribly disappointing and the sort of thing I normally expect from leftwingers.”
(More like this in: Politics and Government) .:link:.

“The only sexism involved in the Miers nomination is the administration’s claim that once they decided they wanted a woman, Miers was the best they could do. Let me just say, if the top male lawyer in the country is John Roberts and the top female lawyer is Harriet Miers, we may as well stop allowing girls to go to law school.”
