QUOTES OF THE WEEK


"I take full responsibility for my actions. The picture was of me, and I sent it."
NY Congressman Anthony Weiner


"I asked him to take a picture and write 'me' on it so I would know [it was him]. I didn't think it was him. I thought for sure, 'Why would someone in that position be doing this?'"
Weiner accuser, Meagan Broussard


“'After a while I said to Anthony (Weiner), why are we writing these messages when we can just speak? I gave him my number and he called me from his office and we proceeded to talk dirty for at least 30 minutes. A few days later, I tried to call him back on that number. But the number wouldn't connect to his office; instead there was a recorded message that it was an outgoing U.S. Congress line only.”
Lisa Weiss


“How did I miss this chance to rock your world by phone? Give me another chance! Stalk me baby. Very hot. (I am a) caped crusader . . . looking for my sidekick. (I’m) dying of boredom over here. Plus my tights really itch, I need a distraction.”
Weiner in a written message to Lisa Weiss after he missed her phone call.


"If his name weren’t Weiner, would we still be talking about this?"
NPR's Nina Totenberg


"That's opportunity knocking for all of us now."
The Wisconsin State Journal reported: “Gov. Scott Walker got his biggest applause line for that off-hand remark, made midway through his keynote address Thursday at an annual housing conference at UW-Madison. It came right after four hard, booming knocks — clearly audible over Walker's words in the packed Fluno Center auditorium — as protesters opposed to the governor's budget-cutting policies pounded their disdain on the outside walls of the building. Walker's quick improvisation broke the rising tension, as hearty laughter and clapping from the rows of housing industry professionals briefly drowned out the competing clamor.”
