"Non Compos Mentis" Award: "We avow the First Amendment. We stand with that and say that people have a right to have a gun to protect themselves in their homes and their jobs, where ever, and … for recreation for hunting and the rest." –House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) (Memo to Nan: That would be the Second Amendment and the protection in question would be against a government which no longer comports to constitutional restraints.)

Calling all sycophants: "The president and I are going to continue to travel the country, so that [the gun control] we’re proposing can’t be misrepresented. To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on you — the legitimate news media — to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed." –Joe Biden

The BIG Lie: "There’s some information that suggests that some of these [gun] manufacturers build their sales models on an assumption that at least 20 percent of the weapons will get sold illegally." –Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD)

Gun grabbers: "It’s clear that we need to look at handguns also." –Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) on further gun control — because it’s worked so well in Chicago

Denying the problem: "The fact is, we’ve had plenty of spending cuts. … [I]t is almost a false argument to say that we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem." –Nancy Pelosi (We’re on pace to increase the national debt by $7 trillion over 10 years.)

Chutzpah: "On behalf of Americans everywhere, Michelle and I wish to extend our appreciation and prayers to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. Michelle and I warmly remember our meeting with the Holy Father in 2009, and I have appreciated our work together over these last four years." –Barack Obama (Someone should tell him that being sued by the Catholic Church doesn’t constitute "working together.")

The Democrat Motto: "Don’t confuse me with any facts." –Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL) at a townhall meeting
