I Didn't Say It ....

Ryan Murphy, on the end of Glee after its next (sixth) season:
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story. I always knew that, I always knew how it would end. I knew what the last shot was, he was in it. I knew what the last line was, she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now.”

Sadness.

Harry Reid, on Ted Cruz: 
"Ted Cruz is smart. He has always been able to talk down to people. He is now in the Senate. People are as smart as he is. He can't talk down to anyone anymore. But he has still not accepted that in his own head. He still thinks he's smarter than everybody else. He might be able to work a calculus problem better than I can. But he can't legislate better than I can."

Who knew Harry was so good at throwin’ shade?

Cory Booker, Newark, New Jersey mayor and Senator-elect, officiating at the marriage of Orville Bell, responding to a heckler who shouted, "This is unlawful in the eyes of God!":
"Not hearing any substantive, worthy objections, I now will proceed."

Snap.

Jim Parsons, on his life with partner Todd Spiewak, as he accepted GLSEN's Inspiration Award:
"I've never considered myself an activist. I have never considered my relationship with Todd to be an act of activism. Rather it is simply an act of love. Coffee in the morning. Going to work. Washing the clothes. Taking the dogs...regular life boring love"

Just like everybody else.
Is that so wrong?

Carlo Key, Bexar, Texas County Criminal Court Judge, on leaving the GOP to seek reelection as a Democrat:
“I can no longer be a member of the Republican Party. For too long, the Republican Party has been at war with itself. Rational Republican beliefs have given way to ideological character assassinations. Pragmatism and principal have been overtaken by pettiness and bigotry. Make no mistake: I have not left the Republican Party. It left me. I cannot tolerate a political party that demeans Texans based on their sexual orientation, the color of their skin or their economic status. I will not be a member of a Party in which hate speech elevates candidates for higher office rather than disqualifying them. I cannot place my name on the ballot for a political party that is proud to destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of federal workers over the vain attempt to repeal a law that would provide health care to millions of people throughout our country."

The GOP is losing it, and losing it big time.
I feel an implosion coming.

Steve Lonegan, loser, and loser to Cory Booker for the New Jersey Senate, on his defeat:
"There is no doubt in my mind or in the minds of any of my campaign staff that the shutdown cost me the election. If I had known it was going to happen and that it was going to be handled so badly in Washington, I wouldn't have run for the Senate. Republicans had a chance to win a U.S. Senate seat and in the process send a powerful message to Obama and instead they shut down government with no message and no game plan. I was probably the single biggest casualty of their mistake."

Oh, honey, you lost because you trotted out the likes of dumbass, dim bulb, Mama Grizzly Bore™ to campaign for you and the world is over her.
And you.

David Mixner, on the ACA website glitches:
"Stop bickering and complaining about technical glitches. Maybe it could have been done a little better but hell, at least you aren't getting some person on the phone who has no medical training saying you have to go home after your surgery and then almost die because of that decision."

Perspective; just a little perspective.

I like that Jim Parsons. And he's a dog person (I'm sure he likes cats too....)

@TDM
I like his attitude, that his life with his partner is no different than any other relationship.

Jim Parsons is amazing as Sheldon, and Harry Reid has shown quite a bit of backbone lately. I'm loving it!
