APRIL 2007

Option A: "Cut her mic." - Bill O'Reilly to guest U.S. Army Colonel (Ret.) Ann Wright, after she said she had served 29 years and asked him how long he had served, The O'Reilly Factor, 3/30/07

Option B: "These people can't even wrap up genocide. We've been hearing about this slaughter in Darfur forever - and they still haven't finished. The aggressors are moving like termites across that country. It's like genocide by committee. Who's running this holocaust in Darfur, FEMA?
"This is truly a war in which we have absolutely no interest." - Ann Coulter, April 4, 2007

Option C: Young men in America's colleges lack "testosterone." Mark Steyn just days after the VA Tech shooting, Your World with Neil Cavuto, 4/19/07

(Context, from Nat'l Review Online 4/18: "...when one man is able to kill dozens of people in the same location over a period of several hours, that reflects a systemic failure. So we need to understand what caused that failure. And I think part of the problem is a general culture of passivity, which Virginia Tech exemplifies. ...They're not 'children.' The students at Virginia Tech were grown women and -- if you'll forgive the expression -- men.")

Option D: "If we'd had these provisions in the second world war, we'd be speaking German right now. We wouldn't be sitting here on this panel – if we had a panel." – Charles Krauthammer on the stipulation in the Iraq Supplemental spending bill that would require troops to be prepared before being sent into battle, Special Report, 4/23/07

Option E: “We can’t post the Ten Commandments any more, we can’t pray in school, Bible reading isn’t allowed by the teachers and then we expect our students, you know, to have this moral discipline and I just wonder if this young man (Virginia Tech gunman Cho) had been looking up every day in his classroom to the Ten Commandments, Thou Shalt Not Kill, if it would have made a difference in his life.” - Mrs. James (Shirley) Dobson, Hannity & Colmes, 4/30/07

MAY 2007
Hmmm, apparently we didn't do the OQOTW in May. Here are some memorable moments as gleaned from our blog:

Option A: " The New York Times and the far left want to break down the white christian male power structure." Alarmed and indignant Bill O'Reilly to John McCain, The O'Reilly Factor, 5/30/07

Option B: “When the next attack is made, Alan, people like you and Rosie O’Donnell will be responsible.” Bill Cunningham

I’m going to be responsible for an attack. You want to blame your fellow Americans. YOU are part of the blame America first crowd.” Alan Colmes

“YOU, not fellow Americans. I want to blame Rosie, Nancy and Alan Colmes for being apologists and a stooge.” Bill Cunningham, hate-radio host and guest on Hannity and Colmes, 5/10/07

Option C: “...and I only wish I had that bat to take at her like a human piñata.” "Guardian Angel" Curtis Sliwa about Rosie O'Donnell, Hannity and Colmes, 5/24/07

Option D: "I think the French people are angry because their European welfare state-ism may be in jeopardy. The signals are out. Maybe they're actually gonna have to work just a little bit harder for a living and not rely so much on the European - the social welfare state in France." Neil Boortz foreign policy analysis upon election of Nicolas Sarkozy and subsequent protests, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, 5/7/07

JUNE 2007

Option A: "Now apparently The Times isn't real concerned about Muslim guys allegedly trying to set up another 9/11. ...This is not the Colbert Report. This is The Factor and this is the fact. On page one, The New York Times instead of the JFK terror arrests we saw some Indian people with bricks." Bill O'Reilly, showing top half only of Sunday New York Times, obscuring from viewers headline beneath the fold that read "4 Charged in bomb plot at Kennedy Airport." Talking Point Memo 6/4/07

Option B: "Let me ask you this. Would any of the very accomplished, successful women on our panel - would any of you want to be President? Is that something any of you aspire to? The answer's 'no.' And I think that's the point, you know, I mean, what does this mean for Hillary ... and I tell ya' I just - I don't think any rational woman would ever want to be President. That's what's still mystifying me about Hillary." Jonathan Hoenig

"Are you saying you don't think a woman can be President?" Cheryl Casone, host

"No. Of course. It's not a question of her talent or her ability. I just think that - you know, being President - being Commander-in-Chief of all men - for me it goes against a woman's basic value of hero worship." Hoenig, Capitalistpig.com, Cashin In, 6/16/07

Option C: "I don't mind being criticized with facts, but if you call me a racist or dishonest, I'm coming after you." Bill O'Reilly, to whom facts are like kryptonite, during a speech at the National Society of Newspaper Columnists conference 6/22/07*

Option D: "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
