Quote
"I don't know if that picture is me. It could well be. It looks like me. I don't know who that baby is. I have no idea what the picture is . . . I mean, do you know how many pictures have been taken of me holding children in the last three years? I mean, it happens all the time."

Responding to ABC's Bob Woodruff regarding a National Enquirer photograph of Edwards holding a baby -- reportedly his love child -- as quoted in The Washington Post.

Comment: After Enquirer reporters caught Edwards visiting his mistress and secret love child late one night at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, it was a hot news story. For a day or two. Then: silence. Can you imagine the ruckus the media would have raised if instead of Edwards it was Romney or Giuliani or Huckabee? It would still be on page one.

Quote
"Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination . . . Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years. Treating 65-year-olds differently because of stereotypes or falsehoods would be ageist; treating them differently because they have already had more life-years is not."

Writing, with co-authors Govind Persad and Alan Wertheimer, in the British medical journal Lancet, January 31, 2009.

Comment: The author, Richard Poe, of the referenced article explains: "In other words, to put it crudely, if we decided to let the elderly die because we think of them in 'stereotypical' terms -- say, if we thought of them as useless old dodderers -- we would be guilty of 'ageism.' However, if we let them die for a 'good' reason -- for example, because we decide that they have already had their chance at life, and now it's time to give someone else a chance -- then letting them die is perfectly 0K. In Emanuel's view, letting old people die is not the problem. The problem is finding the right words to justify it."

Comment: When asked if Code Pink sees the U.S. military as the enemy, Ms. Evans responded hesitantly, "N-n-n-n-no." Then she went on to liken military recruiting centers to "liquor stores and porn shops."
