Outrageous Quote of the Week @ June 30, 2007

Reported by Chrish - July 2, 2007 -

The winner of last week's poll was George W. Bush, for saying to invited guests at a White House Mardi Gras themed barbecue

"Glad you're here. Thanks for coming. You all enjoy yourselves. Make sure you pick up all the trash after it's over."
However, as commenters noted, those remarks were not directed at musicians Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers (as it appeared in the written transcript) but rather to the audience at large (as I'm told it appeared in the video.) In light of that, let's also give a hand to the runner-up, Bill O'Reilly, for this lie/threat:
"I don't mind being criticized with facts, but if you call me a racist or dishonest, I'm coming after you."

This week's crop o' crap appears after the jump.

Option A: "I do think anyone named B. Hussein Obama should avoid using 'hijack' and 'religion' in the same sentence." Ann Coulter, 6/25/07 Hannity & Colmes

Option B: "News people are supposed to respect opposing points of view. In America today, that's obviously not the case...As many in the media see their role not to inform or enlighten you, but to promote various ideological causes of their own." Bill O'Reilly projecting yet again, TPM 6/26/07.

Option C: "...the lefties hate Vice President Dick Cheney, and boy do they ever. They're mad at him for a whole laundry list of imagined and concocted offenses, having mostly to do with the fact that Cheney 'doggedly pursues our nation's enemies' and he doesn't much care what most people think of what he is doing." John Gibson defending extra-Constitutional Veep, My Word, The Big Story 6/27/07.

Option D: "I can't get into a cab in New York City without hearing NPR, so the bottom line is that there are things out there, yeah, you know, they're waiting for the signal, a lot of potential terrorists, waiting, you know, getting justification for their acts from the American media, but that's a different story." Stock broker Charles Payne on Your World w/Neil Cavuto during a discussion about the Fairness Doctrine 6/30/07.

Option E: "I don't want to make this about politics." Famous last words from Neil Cavuto, in a discussion about immigration and border security 6/30/07.
