Outrageous Quote of the Week - Week of January 8th

Reported by Janie - January 15, 2007 -

With 36% of last week's vote, Greg Gutfeld (video blogger for Fox News) took home his first Outrageous Quote for suggesting that it's fine with him if people on death row are executed even if they are innocent:

"That is such a tiny, miniscule percentage, I'm willing to live with it." - 1/6/07

For this week's selection, take a look below the jump!

Option A: "There will be a division like there was last year, between the moderates and the left on immediate withdraw which is what this amounts to. It's a stronger step than what Harry Reid is proposing. A sense of the Senate Resolution, which I guess is going to be introduced next week. In either case, if one of these were to pass, it seems to me it does damage anyway. I mean, it undermines the President." - Mort Kondracke on Sen. Ted Kennedy's proposal for legislation requiring approval from Congress before additional troops can be sent to Iraq, "Special Report", 1/9/07

Option B: "Where's their plan"? - Fox Ticking Clock after Bush's address on escalation, "Hannity & Colmes", 1/10/07

Option C: "The large one was the broken promise that Democrats would support the troops. Pelosi's supporters are correctly quoting her when they insist she said Democrats would support the troops already in Iraq, but not any new troops. In my opinion, that is a distinction without difference. If she wants to de-fund the troops, make them come home, she should say so straight up. Instead we get a weaselly backing away from the promise to always support the troops." - John Gibson, "My Word", 1/8/07

Option D: "Dan, you talk about a hostile enemy obviously being Iraq, but hostile enemies right here on the home front." - Gretchen Carlson referring to Sen. Ted Kennedy as a "hostile enemy", "Fox & Friends", 1/10/07

Option E: "Exactly, Sean! Look. He committed the crimes in Iraq. Let the Iraqis try him, not some international court. I want you to go into the street, Sean, and show people a picture of Barbra Streisand and, ah, ask them if they, ah, if you should put that on TV. See what their reaction's about." - Neil Boortz comparing the picture of Saddam Hussein after his execution to Barbara Streisand, "Hannity's America", 1/14/07
