Missed this, from Human Events, August 31:
1. “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.” ~ President Obama at an August 6 at a rally in VA

3. “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have 2 days and 2 lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” ~ Rep. John Conyers (MI) at the National Press Club, July 24…

4. “These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views – but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.” ~ House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD), writing in USA Today, August 10

At that time, we had a lot of Ku Klux Klan folks and white supremacists and folks in white sheets and other things running around causing trouble.” ~ Rep. John Dingell (MI), on MSNBC
6. “What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics.” ~ Rep. Brian Baird, (WA) told a local newspaper
7. “The last time I saw well-dressed people doing this, was when Al Gore asked me to go down to FL when they were recounting the ballots, and I was confronted with the same type of people.” ~ Sen. Barbara Boxer (CA)
8. “I hope people will take a jaundiced eye to what is clearly the Astroturf nature of so-called grassroots lobbying… the Astroturf nature of grassroots lobbying, which is largely the term for, you know, this is manufactured anger.” ~ White House spokesman Robert Gibbs

9. “Republicans and their allied groups – desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill – are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right-wing extremists funded by K Street lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of healthcare in America taking place in congressional districts across the country.” — Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse
10 (tie). “These are nothing more than destructive efforts to interrupt a debate that we should have, and are having. They are doing this because they don’t have any better idea…. It’s really simple: They’re taking their cues from talk-show hosts, Internet rumor-mongerers and insurance rackets.” ~ Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV)
“Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.” — Sen. Arlen Specter (PA), responding to a town hall participant

My favorite is #10, Specter. What’s yours?
