Reported by Janie - January 8, 2007 -
Bill O'Reilly, now a 10-time winner, won last week's Outrageous Quote of the Week with 59% of the vote for needlessly smearing Hollywood:
"We the good guys... Are you listening Hollywood? We the good guy have to have a win." - "The O'Reilly Factor", 12/29/06
For this week's selection, take a look below the jump!
Option A: "It's business as usual in Iraq. You're going to have the insurgents doing their own thing. You have the Iraqis and the Sunnis fighting. It's expected." - Brigitte Gabriel, the founder of the "American Congress for Truth", "Your World", 2/2/07
Option B: Obama admitted to cocaine use "as did our current president, who admited to cocaine use, correct?" (Kiran Chetry) After Doocy and Napolitano interrupted, Chetry backpedaled, saying, "Who was it that said they witnessed him doing cocaine?" Still not getting any support from her co-hosts, Chetry gave up and the trio went on to paint Obama in as negative a light as possible.
"We don't know that he did it once," Doocy said. - "Fox & Friends", 2/3/07
Option C: "Most of the discrimination today is from black folks toward white Americans". - Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, "Hannity & Colmes", 1/2/07
Option D: "It could be a first woman; it could be a first black man, it could be a first cocaine user, it could be a first-time Senator winning the presidency." - AB Stoddard of "The Hill" on the next President of the United States, "The Big Story", 1/3/07
Option E: "100 Hours to Turn America into San Francisco" – Banner on "Hannity & Colmes", 1/4/07
Option F: "One of my biggest concerns, Dennis, on top of this – for what, 10 plus years he's been associated with the Nation of Islam, a blatantly anti-Semitic, racist organization." - Sean Hannity lying about Rep. Keith Ellison's association with the Nation of Islam, "Hannity & Colmes", 1/4/07
Option G: "But I also think we have to distinguish between authoritarian governments that are friendly to us and those that are hostile. I don't think we want to see the Saudi monarchy fall and be replaced by an Islamist government. Does anybody doubt if the Shah was still in power we wouldn't be having Iran as a major threat? So, I think when you talk about dictators, ya' gotta be realistic. Ya' gotta be a little cynical." - Jim Michaels, "Forbes on FOX", 1/6/07
Option H: "Yeah, but a number of [people on death row] were found by DNA, though, not to have been guilty." - Terry Keenan, host of "Cashin' In."
"That is such a tiny, miniscule percentage, I'm willing to live with it." - Greg Gutfeld, guest, "Cashin' In", 1/6/07
Option I: "You know what? I haven't lost a wink of sleep over that execution. And I wouldn't lose a wink of sleep if I saw, you know, Kim Jong Il or Ahmadinejad, you know, twisting in the wind. Those things don't bother me." - Lea Goldman, "Forbes on FOX", 1/6/07
Option J: "2007 is going to be a bloody year in Iraq. Period. That's just a fact. The question is whether it's a bloody year on the path to success for the U. S. in a vital, strategic interest or whether we lose." - Bill Kristol, "FOX News Sunday", 1/7/07
