Outrageous Quote of the Week 11/2/08 - Special Pre-election Edition

Reported by Chrish - November 3, 2008 -

Dick Morris won handily last week for his approval of extra-legal and/or unethical activity, all for "security" sake: "As far as I'm concerned, I'm in favor of a Governor using all the power she can and even abusing her power to make sure that public safety is maintained."

This week has been excrutiatingly difficult, with rhetoric and smears flying at warp speed, so there is an abundance of choices which have been broken down into smaller sub-polls. Let's see if there is a definitve "winner" in this smorgasbord of smears.

NOTE there are THREE polls this week due to the large amount of poo-flinging. Please vote in all three!

Part 1 - Dick Morris and Ann Coulter go toe-to-toe:

Option A: "I feel like we are talking to the Germans after Hitler comes to power, saying 'Oh, well, I didn't know. I had no idea he was gonna be like this.' With (Obama), Americans ought to know." Ann "Boombox" Coulter, Hannity & Colmes, 10/30/08

Option B: "(Obama's) entirely consistent. He wants us to live in poverty, too." Dick Morris criticizing Obama for not being more generous to his Kenyan relatives (whom he barely knows). Hannity & Colmes, 11/1/08

Option C: "Every single one of Obama's friends is a dangerous lunatic." Ann Coulter, Hannity & Colmes, 10/30/08

Option D: "I think that there is a significant risk that if Obama wins, and he raises the capital gains tax, and he raises the income tax, you are going to trigger an unbelievable depression." Dick Morris on Hannity & Colmes, 11/1/08

Option E: "You love Saddam Hussein," Ann Coulter to Alan Colmes, Hannity & Colmes, 10/30/08

Part 2 - The O'Reilly - Palin - Hannity Sandwich:

Option F: "I actually think Barack Obama should apologize for hanging with the guy. He should throw him under the bus just like he did Reverend Wright. Look, senator, everybody makes mistakes. You made one. This is a bad guy. Just say you made a mistake in judgment. Then it goes all away.

But Obama has not done that, so poor Jesse had to track Ayers down. That should be the end of the story but, of course, it won't be." Bill O'Reilly, The Factor, 10/27/08

Option G: "... if Americans simply vote on emotion, we are heading for disaster. Electing unqualified people simply because you are angry with the Bush administration will drastically weaken the country.

The best example of this is Al Franken, who is running for the Senate in Minnesota. A far-left extremist, Franken's tenure on the Air America Radio network was punctuated by one word: hate. The man is a smear merchant and a rank liar, unqualified for any elected office". Bill O'Reilly, The Factor, 10/28/08

Option H: "Well, they've got to be exclusively, of course, concentrating on the administrative side of governance and there again, that's where my executive experience will be put to good use." Sarah Palin wrongly describing the VP job as she envisions it, On The Record, 10/31/08

Option I: "(I have appointed) Democrats and Independents and Republicans in my administration. Got the track record to prove that that's the way I operate as getting along with those who perhaps don't agree on every single issue but that's what you gotta do, especially in this time of great challenge for America. That's what we have to do... You start by not discrediting or invalidating someone because of a position that maybe they take that you are in disagreement with. You learn from them and you're able to find middle ground on so many of these issues... There is always a way to work with another person... Maybe we disagree on some of the particulars on an issue. We don't have to be screamin' at each other, though. Let's find a way to work together and solve a problem." Sarah Palin, uniter not a divider, On The Record, 10/31/08

Option J: "Let me ask you a couple of simple questions about this redistribution of wealth from Senator Redistribution. Is it socialism?" Sean Hannity to John McCain, Hannity & Colmes, 10/28/08

Option K: "Why is it every time we find one of these associates of Barack Obama, they run away and refuse to say anything? Why do they all seem to look so guilty?" Sean Hannity, Hannity & Colmes, 10/30/08

And last but not least, Part 3 - Leftovers:

Option L: JTP: "McCain has fought and bled for our country, and loves our country. There’s too many questions with Barack Obama and his loyalty to our country. And I question that greatly."

NC:: "Well, you’re not doubting that he’s a good American. Or you are?"

JTP: "Oh you know, his ideology is something that is completely different than what democracy stands for, so I had some question there. In my opinion." Joe (wink, wink) the Plumber (wink, wink), Neil Cavuto Special 11/2/08

Option M: "I think it's very, very interesting that NOW has endorsed her (Sarah Palin." (They didn't.) Megan McCain carrying on the family tradition, FOX and Friends, 10/31/08

Option N: "When you look at someone like Senator Obama, with this plethora of strong associations with radicals, with subversives, with anti-Americans, it's inconceivable to me that he could get a standard security clearance to work for the US government." Daniel Pipes, FOX and Friends, 10/30/08

Option O: "If he's (Obama) elected president, he will nominate people for the Supreme Court, who he wants to. Would they be more for redistribution? Stand by." Steve Doocy, FOX and Friends, 10/27/08
