Best:

"Certainly it's a reminder that 'the troops' are hardly marching in lockstep behind the Bush/McCain perpetual war agenda." —Matthew Yglesias on U.S. soldiers' greater support for antiwar candidates

Worst:

"How dare anyone unilaterally decide when to turn the page on history, papering over real inequities and suffering constituencies in the promise of a feel-good campaign? How dare anyone claim to unify while dividing, or think that to rouse U.S. youth from torpor it’s useful to triage the single largest demographic in this country’s history: the boomer generation—the majority of which is female?" —Robin Morgan on Barack Obama

(Wow, the use of italics actually makes the woman who once advocated "man-hating" as an "honorable and viable political act" sound more unhinged. How is that even possible?)

Best:

"This was the worst movie I've ever seen, so bad that I hesitate to label it a 'movie' and thus reflect shame upon the entire medium of film. [The directors] do not practice the same craft as P.T. Anderson, David Cronenberg, Michael Bay, Kevin Costner, the Zucker Brothers, the Wayans Brothers, Uwe Boll, any dad who takes shaky home movies on a camping trip, or a bear who turns on a video camera by accident while trying to eat it. They are not filmmakers. They are evildoers, charlatans, symbols of Western civilization's decline…" —Josh Levin on Meet the Spartans

Worst:

"How about trying self-restraint? It’s free." —Michelle Malkin on college students who can't afford birth control
