My favorite end of year awards,

It’s the best of the Notable Quotables from the Media Research Center.

My favorite:

Matt Lauer in Baghdad: “Talk to me…about morale here. We’ve heard so much about the insurgent attacks, so much about the uncertainty as to when you folks are going to get to go home. How would you describe morale?”

Chief Warrant Officer Randy Kirgiss: “In my unit morale is pretty good. Every day we go out and do our missions and people are ready to execute their missions. They’re excited to be here.”

Lauer: “How much does that uncertainty of [not] knowing how long you’re going to be here impact morale?

Specialist Steven Chitterer: “Morale is always high. Soldiers know they have a mission. They like taking on new objectives and taking on the new challenges….”

Lauer: “Don’t get me wrong here, I think you are probably telling me the truth, but a lot of people at home are wondering how that could be possible with the conditions you’re facing and with the attacks you’re facing. What would you say to those people who are doubtful that morale can be that high?”

Captain Sherman Powell: “Sir, if I got my news from the newspapers also, I’d be pretty depressed as well.”

— Exchange on NBC’s Today, August 17
