    Scott Walker
    O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!

    Ted Cruz
    I have no spur
    To prick the sides of my intent, but only
    Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself
    And falls on th’ other.

    Mike Huckabee
    The devil can cite scripture for his purpose.

    Offence’s gilded hand may shove by justice,
    And oft ‘tis seen the wicked prize itself
    Buys out the law.

    From any dram of mercy.
