Professor Krugman has top quote of the year 2011

Media Research Council collected (voted on) the quotes of the year 2011 MRC

Did you know that NY Times partisan Professor Paul Krugman got a Nobel Prize, and it's not for peace. His notable words were for the 9/11 anniversary:
“What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. [The] atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neo-cons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons....The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.”
One runner-up for the MRC 'quote of the year" award was Stephen Marche of Esquire Magazine, who was cited for saying:
“Can we just enjoy Obama for a moment? Before the policy choices have to be weighed and the hard decisions have to be made, can we just take a month or two to contemplate him the way we might contemplate a painting by Vermeer or a guitar lick by the early-seventies Rolling Stones or a Peyton Manning pass or any other astounding, ecstatic human achievement? Because twenty years from now, we’re going to look back on this time as a glorious idyll in American politics, with a confident, intelligent, fascinating president riding the surge of his prodigious talents from triumph to triumph....’I am large, I contain multitudes,’ Walt Whitman wrote, and Obama lives that lyrical prophecy....Barack Obama is developing into what Hegel called a ‘world-historical soul,’ an embodiment of the spirit of the times. He is what we hope we can be.”
The other runner-up for this award was MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews who said his daily cable news program,
“Hardball is absolutely non-partisan.”
And there are many more: Thomas Friedman, Margaret Carlson… Go to the link at the top to enjoy.
