“Deeply concerned.” The administration’s reaction to the building of homes in Israel’s capital or its reaction for months to Bashar al-Assad’s murder of his own citizens? (But finally, movement.)

“You don’t raise taxes in a recession.” President Obama or House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.)

Ruth Marcus or Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on the appointment of Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, to the super-committee to reduce the debt? “She has a built-in conflict of interest that is hard to overcome.”

On the Wisconsin recall election:“There’s no way to sugar-coat it: Unions and Dems failed in their objective as they defined it, which was to take back the state senate, put the brakes on Scott Walker’s agenda, and let the nation know that elected officials daring to roll back public employee bargaining rights would face dire electoral consequences.” The Plum Line or National Review?

Who gave “a clear message to Damascus to halt the bloodshed resulting from the brutal repression of pro-democracy protests”? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan?

Matt Miller or Bill O’Reilly? “Events keep screaming that the president is weak, weak, weak.”

Jon Stewart or Rush Limbaugh? “Be honest, Newsweek. You used that photo in a petty attempt to make Michele Bachmann look crazy. . . . Shame on you, Newsweek. And your editor, Tina Brown.”

The Onion or the Journal Sentinel? Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman: “The historic gains made tonight to restore balance and accountability to our state, and restore Wisconsin values, will continue when the entire state weighs in on the November 2012 elections — and with the recall of Scott Walker himself.”
