Quotes of the Week


Rush Limbaugh on his show Monday,

"The Left believes they are smarter than reality!"


Justice Antonin Scalia's dissenting opinion in the case, Roper vs. Simmons, regarding juvenile executions for Capital crimes, is one for the annals of American History,

"The Court thus proclaims itself sole arbiter of our Nation's moral standards--and in the course of discharging that awesome responsibility purports to take guidance from the views of foreign courts and legislatures. Because I do not believe that the meaning of our Eighth Amendment, any more than the meaning of other provisions of our Constitution, should be determined by the subjective views of five Members of this Court and like-minded foreigners, I dissent."

Jefferson hardly said it better.

Senator Jim Gibbons (R-Nevada) While praising American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gibbons reportedly said that liberals, movie stars and singers are trying to divide our country.
He is quoted as saying ...

"I say we tell those liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and their music and whine somewhere else,"

I think you just did, Senator.

Jada Pinkett Smith, who hosted the first show Saturday afternoon, was honored as the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relation’s “Artist of the Year.”

“Women, you can have it all—a loving man, devoted husband, loving children, a fabulous career,” she said. “They say you gotta choose. Nah, nah, nah. We are a new generation of women. We got to set a new standard of rules around here. You can do whatever it is you want. All you have to do is want it.”

“To my men, open your mind, open your eyes to new ideas. Be open,” she added. In an interview after the show, Counter said Pinkett Smith was “the best we’ve had thus far."

Very well, said. Thank you Mrs. Smith.

And finally, we end the week with Wretchard of Belmont Club from his review of Victor Davis Hanson recent debate with Dartmouth History Professor Ronald Edsforth on the subject of war...
The more interesting philosophical question is whether we could abolish war without abolishing ourselves. The possibility of heaven is purchased at the risk of hell and the gift of fire balanced by the danger that we should set ourselves ablaze. The Leftist impulse is at heart a longing to be rid of the burden of freedom. What was the dreamed-of Worker's Paradise except the same old places repopulated by the New Soviet Man?

Demonstrating why he is undoubtable one of the best bloggers out there.
