Desperation A Rope Ends It
The Morse Code Here Come Dots
Slot Machines Cash Lost in 'em
Animosity Is No Amity
Mother-in-law Woman Hitler :)
Snooze Alarms Alas! No More Z's
Alec Guinness Genuine Class
Semolina Is No Meal
The Public Art Galleries Large Picture Halls, I Bet
A Decimal Point I'm a Dot in Place

This one's truly amazing:

To be or not to be: that is the question, whether its nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.

And the Anagram:

And for the grand finale:

That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.
--Neil Armstrong

The Anagram:

A thin man ran; makes a large stride, left planet, pins flag on moon! On to Mars!

Nope, one more!

The following phrase is a perfect anagram to start the impeachment trial:
