Outrageous Quote of the Week @ July 14, 2007

Reported by Chrish - July 16, 2007 -

Last week's winner was the contemptuous Bernie Goldberg, who said

"Except for partisans, you can't find three people who live between Manhattan and Malibu who even know who Lewis Libby is. [...] "We go to the American people and we ask them if they can pick out Kansas on a map and they can't. We ask them if they can pick out England on a map and they can't. We ask them who the Vice-president is, they don't have any idea. Who's the Secretary of State? "I don't know." Then we go to them and ask them what they think of the Lewis Libby commutation? I don't care what the American people have to say about these things."

See what gems made the cut this week, after the jump:

Option A: "John Edwards 'believes the rich should pay more simply because they have more, and that's his Marxist bread and butter.'" Jonathan Hoenig on Your World w/Neil Cavuto 7/9/07

Option B: "You look at these posters and they are well done. They're not only somewhat clever, but they certainly are professionally ah, constructed. One wonders whether folks who are so sympathetic to them in Hollywood might have lent a hand..." Frank Gaffney on alleged "Islamo-fascist" recruiting posters in Iraq, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, 07/10/07

Option C: "Well, it doesn't mean it's not safe," Kellyanne Conway in response to Alan Colmes' statement that McCain "keeps going to Iraq and coming back and telling us how safe it is, most recently how safe Ramadi is, and it just is at variance with the facts, when you have 590 US soldiers have died, 3,575 wounded in Iraq since January 10th of this year." Hannity and Colmes, 7/10/07

Option D: "The leading Democratic candidates are talking about attacking capitalism (a), attacking the rich and large corporations, to higher taxes and punitive punishment, big government, and also I think this environmentalist thing is sort of elevating man above God. I think those three things will hurt capitalism." Charles Payne

"You also know that a lot of that growth and a lot of the improvement in the deficit started when Republicans took control of Congress." Neil Cavuto

"It looks to me like a classic choice between a philosophy based on collectivism and one based on individualism. And this particularly could be serious when you think that, potentially, the anti-prosperity wing of the Democratic party could control both the Congress and the White House." Jay Bowen --In a discussion about how the "greatest threat to capitalism" is the '08 election, Cavuto on Business 7/13/07

Option E: "A lot of people who watch this show are tremendously richer because of it." Tobin Smith in a general discussion about the run-up in the stock market this week, on Bulls & Bears 7/13/07

Option F: "I think the editors of the US, New York Times want us to lose in Iraq, and they don't really care if we lose the overall war. [...] They have leaked, published the leaks,not actually leaked, they published the leaks..."

BOR: "They say people have the right to know. That's a provocative statement. You're almost accusing them of being traitors."

"Well, I,( shrugs), let's go pretty close to that." Jed Babbin on The O'Reilly Factor 7/9/07


Option G: "So, there's joy in far-leftville. The Bush-haters have won a victory. Iraq is not going to become a functioning democracy anytime soon, and Bush will have that on his resume forever." Bill O'Reilly on The Factor 7/9/07
