"It's sickening. Short of Roland Burris resigning or resolving this issue — if he can, and I don't know if he can — I don't know what will stop it. I'm tired of this Blagojevich burlesque that's been going on for so long. The people of our state should be spared this." -- U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin

“We’re going to grow the system until we eventually cover one end of the city to the other." Mayor Daley on the new 911 camera/dispatch linking.

"John Gibson never compared Eric Holder to a monkey with a bright blue scrotum." The Huffington Post's Alex Leo on a hoax video that HuffPo fell for.

"Perhaps they're afraid. I don't think anyone is afraid to ask Todd Stroger a tough question. And Daley is a bully; his own staff is afraid of him." Beachwood Reporter/NBC 5's Steve Rhodes to the Trib's John Kass on potential racial bias in media coverage of scandals.
