"Do you think you owe the Iraqi people an apology for not doing a better job?" -- CBS's Scott Pelley to U.S. President George W. Bush, who answered, "We liberated that country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude."
"'Castro Reportedly in Grave,' begins an Associated Press headline. Unfortunately, the next word is ‘Condition'." -- James Taranto
"Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd is running for president. He says that he was been having conversations with the mirror over running. The mirror first said, 'Who are you again?' The bad news is today the mirror said that it favors Barack Obama. ... John Kerry is hiring staff and preparing another run for the White House. He is telling people he will not make the same mistakes again. This time, all new mistakes." -- Jay Leno

"Mr. President... [y]our intention to win must be forcefully communicated, not just because it is preferable to losing, but because the alternative to victory in this War for the Free World is unacceptable." -- Frank Gaffney
"Imagine this war as a sort of grotesque race. The jihadists and sectarians win if they can kill enough Americans to demoralize us enough that we flee before Iraqis and Afghans stabilize their newfound freedom. They lose if they can't. Prosperity, security and liberty are the death knell to radical Islam. It's that elemental." -- Victor Davis Hanson
"Peace and stability require both a military and a political solution -- but the political rests on the military one rather than vice versa." -- John O'Sullivan
"I am running for president. I'm going to be Joe Biden, and I'm going to try to be the best Biden I can be. If I can, I got a shot. If I can't, I lose." -- Joe Biden on entering the presidential race
"My thinking as a leader has evolved. Identifying a problem is not good enough, but taking action to solve it is key." -- John Edwards
"In the past week, there are 476 documents on Nexis heralding the magnificent achievement of Nancy Pelosi becoming the FIRST WOMAN speaker of the House. I thought we had moved beyond such multicultural milestones. The media yawned when Condoleezza Rice became the first black woman secretary of state (and when Lincoln Chaffee became the first developmentally disabled senator)." -- Ann Coulter
"Yesterday was all about celebrating estrogen. More powerful than strontium-90, deadlier than polonium-210, estrogen is better for you than testosterone. That was the new speaker's message, and she got a lot of ‘amens,' even if most were from the ‘womens'." -- Wesley Pruden
"A new poll shows Hillary Clinton finishing fourth among Democratic hopefuls in Iowa. Which is not really that bad considering she came in eighth behind other women in her own home." -- Jay Leno
"The Democrats want the political mileage of opposing the troop increase rhetorically. What they don't want is to take responsibility for their own policy choice. Meanwhile, their rhetoric will only serve to reassure the Jihadis that sooner or later Democrats will force a U.S. withdrawal." -- The Wall Street Journal
"Sure, the average voter is glad Hussein is gone and would be delighted if the Iraqi people opted for democracy, but the man on the street can't see any reason why Americans should suffer to make Iraq safe for Iraqis. They're far more interested in hearing how the sacrifices Americans are making there are making the world safer for Americans. And that's something they haven't been hearing." -- David Keene, president, American Conservative Union

"Pacifism, self-hatred and complacency are lengthening the war against radical Islam and causing undue casualties. Only after absorbing catastrophic human and property losses will left-leaning Westerners likely overcome this triple affliction and confront the true scope of the threat. The civilized world will likely then prevail, but belatedly and at a higher cost than need have been." -- Daniel Pipes
"In Washington today the funeral for President Gerald Ford was held and all the living presidents were in attendance. Jimmy Carter said Ford was a wonderful man. Clinton called Ford a true American. And President Bush said Ford was the guy who invented the automobile." -- Conan O'Brien
"John Edwards announced his candidacy Thursday for the Democratic presidential nomination. It's the second time he has run. The desire to be president is a siren's call, and no one responds to a siren faster than a personal injury attorney." -- Argus Hamilton
"There is now a new law outlawing melting down pennies and nickels for profit. Based on current metal prices, both pennies and nickels are worth more melted down. Leave it to the government to figure out a way to lose money while making money." -- Jay Leno
"We [American women] have waited over 200 years for this time to come. In more than 200 years of history, there was an established pecking order and I cut in line. All right, let's hear it for the power!" -- Nancy Pelosi, newly seated House majority leader, bringing into question whether she can behave in a bipartisan manner with men, much less Republicans
