"Whatever problems it faced, North Korea has usually acted in a way to bolster its leaders. By showing a little bit of a reign of terror, it's likely that Kim Jong Un's power will be further consolidated." — Chin Hee-gwan, a professor at South Korea's Inje University, after Pyongyang executed its No. 2 official, Jang Song Thaek.


"I wasn't thinking about where we were. I just pushed." — Jordan Graham, 22, to a judge during her murder trial on why she shoved her husband of eight days off a cliff in Glacier National Park in Montana.


"They pushed us into the fight to defund Obamacare and shut down the government. That wasn't exactly the strategy I had in mind.

Are you kidding me!" — House Speaker John Boehner on conservative interest groups.
