Outrageous Quote of the Week 9/20/08

Reported by Chrish - September 22, 2008 -

Bless his heart, Bill O'Reilly ran away with the prize last week for his treatment of a guest during a discussion on sexism in the media: "Maria, when you hear me trying to talk that means you have to button it up. With all due respect." Check out this week's harvest after the jump.

Option A: "I have not called him Barry or Hussein." Bill O'Reilly congratulating himself for his fairness to Obama before launching his 25 part smear series "Obama Chronicles" on The Factor, 9/15/08

Option B: "You're looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create." Top McCain advisor Douglas Holtz-Eakin, waving his BlackBerry personal digital assistant and citing McCain's work as a senator. Oddly enough, not repeated ad nauseaum on FOX, 9/16/08

Option C: "I think they look at us as another Alaska family, that adapts to job situations and enjoys Alaska. So they can relate to us. You know, we're just another family that, you know, juggles kids' busy schedules, juggles jobs, and still has fun doing all that stuff. And so, you know, there's, there's lots of Alaskan families that do that and then really there's a lot of American families that do the same." Todd Palin suggesting that Alaskans are not Americans, On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, 9/16/08

Option D: "They hate the fact that she exists, not just her positions, that she exists because she lives her pro-life stance." Laura Ingraham talking about Sarah Palin on The O'Reilly Factor. 9/19/08

Option E: "Now, this notion though, and it's been a steady theme on the part of the Democratic ticket...to say that the rich have not done their fair share, not that, you know, the upper 2, 3 or 4, 5% are that rich these days..." Neil Cavuto, Special Live Coverage of Financial Crisis, 9/20/08
