Insight: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” —John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

Upright: “Leadership isn’t defined by polls or head counts. It is defined by principles and courage. If polls that reflect what happened yesterday are left to determine what happens tomorrow, why do we need leaders? If politics is the art of the possible, it is leadership that takes what seems impossible and brings it into the realm of the possible. Facts appear to bear out that it is not conservatives but the absence of principled leadership that has hurt the Republican Party.” —Star Parker

Non Compos Mentis: “I do not believe in a God who would consider abortion a sin. God created abortion. As he did all of us. God created choice for all to DECIDE.” —"comedian" Margaret Cho

Annals of the absurd: “I don’t think we do children a favor by forcing women to give birth.” —Rep. Gwen Moore

Braying Jenny: “[I]t’s terrible to see a woman, the only woman running for president, attack Planned Parenthood that helps so many millions of women. It’s a sad day, but it’s the way it is. Not all women are going to fight for women. Carly Fiorina does not.” —Sen. Barbara Boxer

Dezinformatsia: “On my Twitter feed yesterday there was a woman who tweeted at me that said thanks to Planned Parenthood I’m still alive.” —Washington Post editor Jonathan Capehart (“Jonathan, have you given any thought to the six million people who will never be able to tweet you because their lives were ended by Planned Parenthood abortions?” —Newsbusters’ Mark Finkelstein)

Good question: “If the videos were selectively edited, if this was entrapment, all untrue, then why did you apologize?” —Rep. Jim Jordan to Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards during congressional testimony

Late-night humor: “Hillary Clinton went on ‘Meet the Press’ yesterday, and I saw that Chuck Todd actually showed her a video of all the times she’s flip-flopped on issues. At first Hillary said she felt bad about it, but now she says she feels OK about it.” —Jimmy Fallon
