– Democrat Representative Charlie Rangel of New York on why how Hillary Clinton cleared the field in her first US Senate try, which included Rudy Giuliani

“It’s not something I’m proud of here, folks, I must be blatantly honest. Nobody would know who she is if it weren’t for me.”

– Rush Limbaugh blaming himself for Sandra Fluke being on the shortlist for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”

“Some do it professionally. Some were entertainers. I looked down the debate stage, and half of them were probably on Fox contracts at one point in their career. You do that. You write some books.
