"It's like the GOP got caught in a plunging elevator and then they all fell screaming ten stories down, and then landed gently to have the doors open to a candy store where everything is free. I can gobble up all your rights!" — Stephen Colbert

"The point is: People making their own decisions is, on balance, better than an autocrat making decisions for them. It’s just that sometimes those decisions are bad, or self-defeating, or maddening, and a day where you get dressed up in your best victory pantsuit and spend an ungodly amount of money decorating your house with American flags and custom-made cardboard cutouts of suffragettes in anticipation of a glass-ceiling-shattering historical milestone ends with you getting (metaphorically) eaten by a giant farting T. rex." — Leslie Knope (as created by a Parks and Recreation writer)

"If you're a woman and you're worried that no matter how hard you work or how much you learn, there will always be a glass ceiling, then I don't really know what to say. I don't know what I would tell my daughter if I were you. Except to have hope. To work for the future" — Jennifer Lawrence (for Vice.com)

"Only in America could a man whose primary national exposure was appearing on a reality-TV show become the reality that so much of the world feared." — Graydon Carter (for VanityFair.com)
