Outrageous Quote of the Week 7/19/08

Reported by Chrish - July 21, 2008 -

Lanny Davis ran away with the vote for saying last week that "Fox has made the right decision because Democrats are looking at Fox as a fair and balanced network. Certainly the way they covered the presidential campaign on the Democratic side was one of the reasons that caused me to want to be here at Fox and and having Howard along side, ah, with people like Karl Rove, I think raises the level of Fox's dialogue." This week's choices, sure to make you shake your head, appear after the jump.

Option A: "There is a belief now that individuals, especially young people, should essentially ... 'devote themselves' to something greater than themselves -- sacrifice their own wants, their own interests, to serve the common good, whatever they happen to believe it is at the time. To me, that's very un-American." Self-described Capitalist Pig Jonathan Hoenig, FOX and Friends, 7/15/08

Option B: "People who serve in the military do so voluntarily, and I think they do so out of their own self-interest. They do so because they want to attack and kill a militant Islam. They do it very selfishly." Self-described Capitalist Pig Jonathan Hoenig, on a tear on FOX and Friends, 7/15/08

Option C: "Speaking of painful, it must have been painful for the Democrats on Capitol Hill to hear [Bush] yesterday, who said it is time for Congress to act. We must drill, drill, drill in the outer-continental shelf. And as soon as [Bush] said that, the price of oil went down 9%, $9.26, or 6%... !" Democrats say it would take years and years, but "all he had to do was say 'I'm serious about this!' and it dropped!" Moments later: "And for [Bush] to say 'drill' (Doocy snapped his fingers for emphasis) and it just drops $10 bucks, come on Congress, don't let us down!" Steve Doocy, FOX and Friends, 7/16/08

Option D: "OK, listen up. Viagra is used to help a medical condition. That's why its covered. Birth control is not a medical condition. It is a choice. Why should I or anyone else pay for your choice? Do I have to buy you dinner before you take the birth control?" Bill O'Reilly, The Factor, 7/17/08

Option E: "If there's a kernel of truth to that Angela Davis, militant image, they're going to have to work very hard to change that." Monica Crowley discussing Michelle Obama and the New Yorker cover, O'Reilly Factor, 7/17/08

Option F: "I mean, it really is hysterical and it does show you that it takes a village, a large village, to prop up an empty suit and those of us who are having a chuckle about this are doing it justifiably so because it just underscores the fact that he needs all of this window dressing to give him the aura of somebody who knows what the heck he's talking about." Michelle Malkin on Barack Obama's foreign policy advisor pool, Your World, 7/18/08
