David Hyde Pierce, on coming out as a happily partnered man:

David Hyde Pierce [again], on finally marrying his longtime partner:

Meryl Streep, on Cher:

Cher, on Meryl Streep:
"She's so good, and she makes me laugh hysterically. We are opposites: she takes everything so easily, and I am so stressed about everything....I think Meryl is doing it [aging] great. The stupid bitch is doing it better than all of us. But I don't like it. It's getting in my way. I have a job to do, and it's making my job harder."

Congressman John Shimkus, on global warming and how "god" will protect us:
And, interesting, that while you take, um, credit, for unleashing Olbermann, the show on which he appeared with you was cancelled in about ten minutes after it first appeared.

I'd like to solve the puzzle: Shut The F_ _k Up.
Keith Olbermann, on Pat Sajak's criticism:
Pat Sajak Is A F_ _ ktard, Keith.
He just proves it time and again.
