Outrageous Quote of the Week 6/21/08

Reported by Chrish - June 23, 2008 -

Last week's winner(s) were the FOX producers who put up this banner on the lower third during America's Election headquarters: "Outraged Liberals: Stop picking on Obama's Baby Mama," denigrating the Princeton grad and future First Lady while blaming the slur on liberals. Check out this week's listing of lameness after the jump.

Option A: "People are against (drilling for oil) because on, I believe on the left in this country what they want is a manufactured scarcity so that government can have the rationale to ration which gives the government what the left wants, ever more minute supervision of our daily choices." George Will, Hannity & Colmes, 6/17/08

Option B: "I think any regulation would mean higher gas prices." Charles Payne discussing about whether regulating oil markets would push gas prices higher, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, 6-17-08

Option C: "I don't want to turn this into a political issue. But I think people are mad enough that it should be a political issue. Am I fair or am I partisan when I say the following: Liberal policies being beholden to environmental groups have caused this dependency to grow over the last couple of decades. They are the problem and, frankly, if I have an American solution, mine is they should go. Am I accurate or am I being partisan?" Sean Hannity, Hannity & Colmes, 6/18/08

Option D: "But, if you get more bang for your buck, congressman, off the Everglades, 50 miles off the Florida coast, 50 miles ah, on the western side of the Florida coast, on the Gulf of Mexico where the Chinese are drilling, where the Cubans are drilling, where even the Germans are drilling, but we can't legally be allowed to be drilling, there's something weird about that, isn't there?" Neil Cavuto telling a lie that Dick Cheney told on June 11, but retracted on June 13, Your World w/, June 20, 2008

Option E: "Liberals in general and the media in particular love the idea that these two are different, Different! Not the same old same old. So they don't even try to hide their affection for them." Bernie Goldberg offering a theory about the popularity of the Obama's on The O'Reilly Factor, 6/19/08

Option F: "But people who know Michelle Obama say she's tough and she is edgy and she does harbor racial resentments based on her life. Evidently, it was she who kept the family in Reverend Wright's church." Mort Kondracke,The Beltway Boys 6/21/08p.

Option G: "Imagine if the McCain campaign pulled something like this, you know, removing minorities from a camera shot? Sharpton and Jackson would be holding candlelight vigils outside McCain campaign headquarters." ... "Imagine the Vatican funding schools in the US that then say horrific things about Muslims.... I imagine the Washington Post, the New York Times, every media outlet in this country going after the Vatican." Laura Ingraham, Just In, 6/18+17/08
