Outrageous Quote of the Week - Week of August 7th

Reported by Janie - August 14, 2006 -

On Fox, criticizing the policies of Israel is considered anti-Semitic, but if you out right slur the Jewish religion while drunk-driving, that's A-OK in Bill O'Reilly's book (as long as you're white, fundamentalist Christian, rich and Republican). For this hypocritical stance of O'Reilly's he received 36% of last week's vote for his outlandish support of Mel Gibson:

They "enjoy the suffering of the rich and powerful. They have blood all over their mouths, these vampires!" - 8/2/2006

Now if a president wants the folks to support him, he must be a teacher, a persuader. He must sell his policies to a public that's often confused. In other words, our leaders must fight the machines." - Bill O'Reilly, Talking Point Memo, The O'Reilly Factor, 8/7/06

Option B: "I do fear that the message that will be taken if I don't win this tomorrow, will be that in the Democratic party there's no room for strong-on-security Democrats, and that's the wrong message." - Joe Lieberman on "Special Report with Brit Hume", 8/7/2006

Option C: “I think we can talk to ‘em and line ‘em up and kill ‘em. The only reason to talk to some of these guys is to just do that." Col. David Hunt's version of diplomacy, "Hannity & Colmes", 8/8/2006

Option D: Is there an "absolutist, a kind of Taliban of the Democratic party now threatening all incumbent Democrats who may have supported the war at one time?" - John Gibson, "The Big Story", 8/9/2006

Option E: "We have a silent majority here that really believes in violence and believes that America's against them. You remember the ramifications from New Orleans, that a lot of dissatisfied people here could ultimately join up with the Muslims or sympathize with them. It's a scary thing here as well as in the UK." - Charles Payne of WStreet.com suggesting New Orleans residents might join terrorist organizations, "Your World with Neil Cavuto", 8/10/06
