Outrageous Quote of the Week 3/22/08

Reported by Chrish - March 23, 2008 -

CapitalistPig's Jonathan Hoenig took the prize last week for saying "What has always made America unique is that you're free from public service and free to pursue your own life, liberty and happiness." [...] "There's nothing morally superior about becoming a low paid teacher as opposed to a wealthy hedge fund manager." This week the herd seemed to be hanging out mostly at Hannity's pen; vote after the jump.

Option A: "I don't want an ad hominem argument here." Moments later: "We discovered and broke the story last night that (Obama is) friends with another pastor who has used the 'n' word repeatedly and talked about the mayor of Chicago as the slave master. I'm very hard pressed to think that maybe he may have some agreement with this which is a scary scenario for a president." Sean Hannity, Hannity & Colmes, 3/21/08

Option B: "Every woman I know, black, white, green or yellow, gets a little bit nervous, if she's being honest, when she sees an 18-25 year-old black guy dressed in gang attire, walking behind her on the street. I'm not afraid of old black men. I'm not afraid of old white men." Susan Estrich, Hannity & Colmes, 3/20/08

Option C: "I believe Senator Obama is in fact a very sincere and dedicated senator who probably is less inclined to say anti-American things than his colleague in the Senate, Dick Durbin." Newt Gingrich, Hannity & Colmes, 3/18/08

Option D: "I've now spent more time in this war than I did when I was a young man leading the Marines in a place called Viet Nam." Oliver North, conflating fighting the war in Viet Nam with covering the war in Iraq, Hannity & Colmes, 3/20/08

Option E: "Moyers puts himself up, at our tax expense, as a fair and objective guy. And here he is at the biggest left-loon conference in the world mocking me. He's a charlatan who epitomizes the left-wing media in this country and doesn't even pay his employees' health insurance." Bill O'Reilly, O'Reilly Factor, 3/19/08

Option F: "What if (Obama) deep down in his heart thinks like (his controversial pastor) Wright?... Is that dangerous for this country? I think that would be dan… That would mean we would have, if he agreed with Wright and I don't know that does, but if he did, that would mean a racist and an anti-Semite would be president of the United States." Sean Hannity, Hannity & Colmes, 3/18/08
