2007’s Most Obnoxious Quotes

I love these. Hat tip goes to Dan (GPW) and VdaK for sending me this posting.

Here is just a taste of RightWingNews’ Top 40 Most Obnoxious Quotes: (READ THE WHOLE THING!)

40) “(I have) a wide stance when going to the bathroom.” — Republican Senator Larry Craig tries to explain away his attempt to pick-up an under cover police officer in an airport bathroom

33) “I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 — building 7, which collapsed in on itself — it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes — 7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible.” — Rosie O’Donnell talks Trutherism

27) “Is there such a thing as a man-made stroke? In other words, did someone do this to (Democratic Senator Tim Johnson)? …I know what this [Republican] party is capable of.” — Joy Behar on The View

25) “When I see a stroller now, I see it as someone who evicted a person with AIDS, right or wrong.” — Brian Basinger, president of the Harvey Milk Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transsexual Democratic Club on the horror of having to live near heterosexual families in San Francisco.

19) “I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.” — Sheryl Crow at the Huffington Post

18) “Now I believe, myself, that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense and you have to make your own decision as to what the president knows: that this war is lost, that the surge is not accomplishing anything.” — Democratic Senator Majority Leader, Harry Reid

16) “Al Qaeda really hurt us, but not as much as Rupert Murdoch has hurt us, particularly in the case of Fox News. Fox News is worse than Al Qaeda — worse for our society. It’s as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.” — MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann

12) “I have zero doubt that if Dick Cheney was not in power, people wouldn’t be dying needlessly tomorrow….I’m just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That’s a fact.” — Bill Maher

1) “Over time, however, the endless war in Iraq began to play a role in natural selection. Only idiots signed up; only idiots died. Back home, the average I.Q. soared.” — Ted Rall

Ignorance, malice and Bush Derangement Syndrome on full display from all corners in 2007.

HAPPY 2008!



  1. The ignorant comment by Keith Olbermann clearly proves that FOX is anything but what this man spews. His vitriolic lies shows a man totally incapable of emitting anything except poisonous venom similar to any dangerous reptile with the same function. I guess the lack of ratings causes a terminal case of Bush Derangement Syndrome. In his case there is no antidote since he is too far gone.

  2. (Fox News is) as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.” — MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann

    Well, well, well. Way to diminish the idea that the Ku Klux Klan was anything to get excited about!

    Olbermann’s histrionics are like a rapist blaming his act on the siren scent of the perfume.

    Hey, Keith, get control of your mouth and then work on trying to connect with some reservoir of common sense. (You may have to outsource the common sense part.)

  5. OT but related: If any U.S.-hating leftie (or rightie / Ron Paul supporter) out there still thinks the U.S. has killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians… think again.

    In Iraq, over 90 percent of civilian casualties were inflicted by other Iraqis. [ed: the Baathist and terrorist “insurgents”, plus Iran-backed Shia death squads]
    The [U.S.] military encouraged the media to not cover the many procedures (“rules of engagement” or ROE) U.S. troops follow to avoid civilian losses. This was because the enemy would exploit those ROEs as much as possible.

    …the efforts the Americans made to keep civilian losses down… paid long term benefits. Iraqis saw, day by day, the efforts by American troops to avoid hurting civilians. Initially, Iraqis saw that as an American weakness, but in the long run they recognized it as a sensibility rarely seen in the Middle East.

  6. Once in a while, I punish myself by reading comments from J.Q. Public posted on the local newspaper’s website. Not a story is posted that fails to elicit at least one incandescently asinine comment.

    There are a lot of stupid people in the world. Some are anonymous posters on the paper’s website and the others (like Ted Rall and Bill Maher) are members of the media “elite”.
