“As you know I never duck the tough calls. So I went ahead and made the List.”

Now I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.”

“From the looks of it, nothing short of an Roman Imperial cult — complete with their apotheosis as state deities upon their death — would satisfy them.”

“The fairness of taxing more lightly incomes from wages, salaries and professional services  than the incomes from business or from investments is beyond question.”

Wage theft and low-wage work often go hand in hand, the report finds, and low-wage workers often have the most to lose.”

“How is it that so many who seem to be such golden winners of life’s lottery manage to generate so much hatred, fear, and contempt for those who have fared less well?”

“Who better than me … to come up with programs to do away with Medicaid and Medicare.”

“When you see a PowerPoint presentation, usually the first thing you should do is put your hand on your wallet.”

“Let’s be blunt and acknowledge the biggest threat to the world’s biggest economy are the cranks and crazies that have taken over the Republican Party.”

“The conservative Media Research Center has posted a public letter urging supporters not to listen to non-conservative media.”

“All of this might be of interest only to historians if Strom Thurmond’s Republican Party had nothing in common with today’s. But it does.”
