Favorite Lines from last night

I'll be brief, 'cuz there's too many to write about, but these are highlights as far as I'm concerned:

President: "If you gave a speech, as my opponent did, calling the Reagan presidency eight years of "moral darkness," then you may be a lot of things, but the candidate of conservative values is not one of them." This entire paragraph of his speech was really good, but that line, placed appropriately in the closer position, was the best.

Gov. Pataki: "On September 11th in New York we learned that in the hands of a monster, a box cutter is a weapon of mass destruction. And Saddam Hussein was a monster -- a walking- talking weapon of mass destruction" I liked a lot of the content of Pataki's speech, although his presentation lacked a little something. But this was a good line--stressing how our opponents think "out of the box" in finding ways to attack us, as we must think "out of the box" as to the threats that we face in the future. Indeed, in this new world, where equipment can be easily procured and every security measure has a weakness somewhere, hate is itself the most deadly of weapons of mass destruction.

And I can't forget this: that entire video, narrated by Fred Thompson, was awesome. Seriously, it was great, and if you didn't see it for whatever reason, you've got to find it. I'll post a link to it as soon as I can.
