The first quote comes from the Detroit News column:
Affirmative action simply chooses another portion of the population as a victim of discrimination, and it bases that bias on the very factors that civil rights advocates wish to avoid. It moves a different segment of society to the back of the bus. (boldface mine--Darren)
The second quote is John's:
Without double standards, it sometimes appears, liberals would have no standards at all.
Of course I agree. And now I'll go grab an iced tea and wait for the outraged liberals to start howling at the moon.
