"I found this rather odd because I always feel like blowing myself up after hearing Hillary Clinton speak." -- Former radio host John Ziegler, introducing former senator Fred Thompson and making a "joke" about the hostage situation at her New Hampshire field office. Per ABC's Christine Byun, Ziegler quickly added: "By the way, the opinions expressed during this portion of the presentation are not necessarily those of Fred Thompson, the Fred Thompson campaign or anyone affiliated in the Republican Party."
"We try to [be] organizing the campaign, but it seems like the grass roots is organizing us." -- Ron Paul.
"I just hang up, but my son thinks its fun. He has fake conversations with her. He's 13." -- Iowa resident Jennifer Stanley, on the 12 robo-calls she's gotten from "Hillary Clinton" already this year.
"Other than that, not much has changed. Dick Cheney is still a war criminal, Hillary Clinton is still Satan and I'm back on the radio." --Don Imus, in his Monday morning return to the airwaves, which included as guests senators McCain and Chris Dodd, D-Conn.
