Outrageous Quote of the Week 1/26/08

Reported by Chrish - January 28, 2008 -

Ann Coulter took the title last week for saying "The majority of military bases in this country are named after Confederate officers (such as) Eisenhower, Nimitz." Because her speech was not completely intelligible, there may be some debate about the actual grammar but her intent is obvious. Hat tip to second-placer Sean Hannity, who should try harder, for his out of touch "The economy is phenomenal. Where have you been living?" This week's pile o' pap follows after the jump.

Option A: "White Americans are afraid. They are afraid of being called a racist. And anytime you are afraid, your enemy will overtake you… And I'm giving white folks permission to start speaking up. I'm a black American. I love my country. I love what's right and I know that it's only the truth that's gonna bring 'em to change and until that happens, it's gonna continue." Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson offering his solution for the "double standard" that supposedly allows blacks, only, to voice racist thoughts, Hannity & Colmes, 1/22/08

Option B: "GOP: Gentlemen Of Politics," lower third chyron beneath Bill Kristol as he praised the "civility and humility" of Republicans in debate, contrasted to Democratic "mudslinging" and "attacks," FOX and Friends 1/25/08

Option C: "Did you know that some of the dictators now apparently, allegedly are drug addicts? That might explain a few things. Hugo Chavez now admitting in a speech that went widely undocumented, by the way, that he chews cocoa (sic) every morning and he also eats something called cocoa (sic) paste, which by the way, is addictive. [snip] Now maybe we know why 'some certain people' like to visit him from the United States!"

"Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Naomi Campbell, Oliver Stone, Kevin Spacey, they've all said 'he's (Hugo Chavez) my guy'. I don't understand, what's the attraction? Why are they getting a pass on this? ...Maybe it's the (coca) paste; maybe it's the paste what's attractive." Brian Kilmeade, moments after erroneously stating that paste "it's cocaine!" FOX and Friends, 1/25/08

Option D: “Well, he found out how to quit you.”

"He was depressed about yesterday’s downturn in the world stock markets."

"Apparently Heath Ledger was suicidal and his friends saw it coming. I think he watched the Clinton-Obama debate last night. I think he was an Edwards guy, cause he saw his Edwards guy was just completely irrelevant." John Gibson on his radio program, hours after news broke of 28-year-old actor Heath Ledger's death, 1/22/08

Option E: " The hard left is happy this evening because the economy is wobbling. For years, these people have been wishing economic disaster on America because they despise President Bush. " Bill O'Reilly, TPM The Factor, 1/22/08

Option F: Alan Colmes, after Barack Obama's win in SC asked, "Is this now the beginning of (a racial) divide happening as we go forward into other states?"

"Well, I hope so, as a Republican. I think that'll be fine." Guest Rich Galen, Hannity & Colmes,
