Time for an admittedly difficult quiz. Three of the quotes below come from Martin Luther King Jr. The other is from a statement issued by an over-zealous Air Force public relations officer.
Can you tell the difference?

* Rep. Allen West says that Martin Luther King would not have supported Occupy Wall Street. Probably not. He'd have been too busy swimming in that Olympic-sized pool full of gold doubloons he was famous for.
* President Obama's jobs plan is looking like it just might be a bigger success than anyone expected. It's looking like it might maybe save one job. Maybe. (Two, if you count VP as a job.)
* The Obama administration has come out and accused Mitt Romney of wanting to be president. Considering the source, that might actually be some pretty damning criticism.
* Herman Cain is losing big time in the Pizza Caucus.

It's really something to witness someone's ascendency in the Republican Party in real time. Just a few short months ago, this Herman Cain was a joke, a person beneath the consideration of any thoughtful political observer. And just look at him today! He's pretty much just a serious a figure as Sarah Palin, Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann.
