“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.”
The opposition in this year has already imported into this campaign a very interesting thing because it's foreign. They have imported the propaganda technique invented by the dictators abroad. Remember, a number of years ago, there was a book, Mein Kampf, written by Hitler himself. The technique was all set out in Hitler's book, and it is copied by the aggressors of Italy and Japan. According to that technique you should never use a small falsehood. Always a big one. For it's very fantastic nature would make it more credible if only you keep repeating it over and over and over again.
Well, let's take some simple illustrations that come to mind. For example—although I rubbed my eyes when I read it—we have been told that it was not a Republican depression, but a Democratic depression from which this nation was saved in 1933; that this administration—this one, today's—is responsible for all the suffering and misery that the history books and the American people always thought had been brought about by the twelve ill-fated years when the Republican party was in power.
In the same video he also says, "The people of this country know the past too well to be deceived into forgetting...." Apparently not.
Mr. Gates, when did you realize you were creating a monopoly?"
"Monopoly is just a game, Senator. I'm trying to control the f***ing world. Don't you see Windows Millenium, me, it's all leading to information technology. Soon it will be Total Information Technology, TIT. And when you're sucking on the TIT, I have you by the motherboard."
A bit dated, but still relevant.
Ann Coulter says what she says for attention. No one would know or care who she is if she didn't do the ideological Tourette's act. Maybe she realizes what a freak she's become and is milking it. Maybe she's not qualified to do anything else but throw poop at the spectators.Dave Wright, commenting at Mouse Wax

The president's so stubborn that were he captain of the Titanic, he would have run the ship into a second iceberg to prove he meant to hit the first one.Rogers Cadenhead, Workbench, October 8, 2005
Would a big, expensive research project convince folks that gay people are not an unusual threat to children? I don't know, but research hasn't done much to inform the debate on evolution.
I don't have a problem with God. It's his fan club I can't stand.
Every time I think I'm a Republican they do something greedy. Every time I think I'm a Democrat they do something stupid.Jay Leno
Men are like a fine wine. They all start out like grapes, and you have to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you'd like to have dinner with.
I, James, am neither a god nor an angel, but a man like any other. Therefore I act like a man and confess to loving those dear to me more than any other man. You may be sure that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else, and more than you who are here assembled. I wish to speak in my own behalf and not to have it thought to be a defect, for Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had his John, and I have my George.
The above was written by King James I/VI -- as in James of the King James Bible...
