In honour of Harriett Woods, who came to our meetup last night to remind us all of the importance of relieving Kit Bond of his duties, I am posting the following quotes of hers that I have carried around for years.

The first one is her most famous:

You can stand tall without standing on someone. You can be a victor without having victims.

And my favorite, a Raisen in the Sun reference:

Senators, this nation can't afford a supreme court justice who fulfills his own dreams, but accepts detours and delays for those pursuing dreams of their own. We urge you to vote against the confirmation of Judge Thomas.
(September 20th, 1991)

Hmmm, can we think of anyone else that this would apply to? Let me think, oh yeah, the entire friggen Bush administration.
