“Let’s be clear: None of these guys made me. This great nation made me. So vote for me. God bless America and forget these three idiots.” Mike Huckabee on the Colbert-O’Brien-Stewart brawl. Notice he doesn’t call Vulture an idiot! [AP]

“My favorite comedy is comedy where nothing is achieved and there is no point. That this whole Huckabee fight turned into an insane Marx brothers dance was fitting somehow.” Conan O’Brien [AP]

“Certain locations are forever set in my mind as touchstones. I can never walk past the boat pond in Central Park without thinking of the day when I pushed a young kid into the water for a scene during the shooting of Weekend at Bernie’s, and it’s impossible for me to go to Coney Island and not remember kissing Mary Stuart Masterson under the boardwalk in a scene from Heaven Help Us, and I always think of that weird indie film I shot in a warehouse way over in the far western reaches of 42nd Street whenever I’m in that neighborhood.” Andrew McCarthy [Slate]

“The videos are there to make the songs visible, to manifest something audible in a visible way. For me, what better way to do that for a song that’s really child-like and joyful than to dance around in a blue-sparkled pantsuit?” Feist on the video for “1-2-3-4” [AP]

“I was never really big on politics … and actually, I’m still not big on politics, [but] the outcome of the last two elections has saddened me…on how unfair, backwards, upside down, unbalanced, untruthful, corrupt and just simply, how wrong the world and politics are. So this year I wanted to get involved and do all I could, early.” Will.I.Am on his “Yes We Can” song for Obama [MTV]
