The Demo-gogues

Way to “represent” the U.S.:

“[W]e have extremists in our country. A wonderful and incredibly brave young woman Congress member was just shot by extremists in our country. We have the same kinds of problems. So rather than standing off from each other, we should work to try to prevent the extremists anywhere from being able to commit violence. … The extremists and their voices, the crazy voices that sometimes get on the TV, that’s not who we are, that’s not who you are, and what we have to do is get through that and make it clear that that doesn’t represent either American or Arab ideas or opinions” –Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, berating our nation in Dubai

On gun control:

“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass. I don’t want to give the NRA — excuse the pun — the ammunition to come at me either. … Guns kill. And those who glamorize gunplay or worship gun ownership do no service to humanity.” –Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), who is preparing to introduce more gun-control legislation in the wake of the Arizona shootings

Jumping to conclusions:

“There are a whole lot of people in the Tea Party that I see in these polls who don’t want any compromise. My presumption is they have unhappy families. All of you have been in families: single-parent, two-parents, whatever. Multiple parent and a stepfather. The fact is life is about trying to reach accommodation with one another so we can move forward. That is certainly what democracy is about. So if we are going to move forward compromise is necessary.” –Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD)

Deriding the Constitution:

“All this stuff taking place in the [House] Chambers the other day, when the Constitution was being read — all that stuff is uncalled for.” –South Carolina Demo Rep. James Clyburn
