David Lane, president of the evangelical group American Renewal Project, establishing his group's rules for a South Carolina speech by Gov. Bobby Jindal: "News reporters aren't allowed to attend unless they can agree with the candidate on which quotes to report."

  "We're on this like a hobo on a ham sandwich." — State Treasurer John Kennedy to FOX 8 reporter Lee Zurik, referencing a questionable film tax credit deal received by the company Horizon Entertainment.
