Word for Word: Best Quotes of the Week, in Pictures

September 2, 2011

Former U.S. Senate candidate from Delaware and tea party darling Christine O'Donnell tweeted jibberish—literally—this week, the chairman of the Republican National Committee called President Obama the "campaigner in chief," and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., invoked conservative legends Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. Here's a look at the week in quotes.

"It took two very strong leaders on the world stage, one a woman and one a man, to reverse the course of their respective countries." -- Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., inviting comparisons to Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, Sept. 1 (PHOTO: SAUL LOEB/AFP/GETTY)(SAUL LOEB/AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
