From WSJ Opionion Journal:
Here's a fun little quiz. We'll give you a series of quotes, and you see if you can figure out who said each. This time it's not a trick question; the answer in each case is one of the people listed.

1. "Governments are there to serve their own people. No people wants to side with or support any oppressors. But regrettably, the U.S. administration disregards even its own public opinion and remains in the forefront of supporting the trampling of the rights of the Palestinian people."

a. Jimmy Carter
b. Pat Buchanan
c. John Mearsheimer
d. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


2. "Since the commencement of the U.S. military presence in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been killed, maimed or displaced. Terrorism in Iraq has grown exponentially. . . . The U.S. Government used the pretext of the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but later it became clear that that was just a lie and a deception. Although Saddam was overthrown and people are happy about his departure, the pain and suffering of the Iraqi people has persisted and has even been aggravated."

a. Howard Dean
b. Markos "Kos" Moulitsas
c. Howard Zinn
d. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


3. "You have certainly heard the sad stories of the Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib prisons. The U.S. administration attempts to justify them through its proclaimed 'war on terror.' But everyone knows that such behavior, in fact, offends global public opinion, exacerbates resentment and thereby spreads terrorism, and tarnishes the U.S. image and its credibility among nations."

a. Dick Durbin
b. Andrew Sullivan
c. Erwin Chemerinsky
d. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


4. "The legitimacy, power and influence of a government do not emanate from its arsenals of tanks, fighter aircrafts, missiles or nuclear weapons. . . . The global position of the United States is in all probability weakened because the administration has continued to resort to force, to conceal the truth, and to mislead the American people about its policies and practices."

a. John Kerry
b. Glenn Greenwald
c. Michael Moore
d. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


5. "Undoubtedly, the American people are not satisfied with this behavior and they showed their discontent in the recent elections. I hope that in the wake of the midterm elections, the administration of President Bush will have heard and will heed the message of the American people."

a. Harry Pelosi
b. Nancy Reid
c. Josh Marshall
d. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


6. "Now that Iraq has a Constitution and an independent Assembly and Government, would it not be more beneficial to bring the U.S. officers and soldiers home, and to spend the astronomical U.S. military expenditures in Iraq for the welfare and prosperity of the American people? As you know very well, many victims of Katrina continue to suffer, and countless Americans continue to live in poverty and homelessness."

a. John Murtha
b. Ned Lamont
c. George McGovern
d. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad


Here are the answers: 1. d; 2. d; 3. d; 4. d; 5. d; 6. d.
