Outrageous Quote of the Week 9/8/07

Reported by Chrish - September 10, 2007 -

Now, back to our regularly scheduled polling. Look below for this past week's most outrageous.

Option A: "Tonight and in the weeks to come, "“The Factor”" will continue spotlighting the blatant bias and dishonesty that is running unchecked among some in the American media. Dissent is fine, dishonesty is not." Bill O'Reilly TPM, 9/4/07

Option B: "If Rudy'd been the mayor of New Orleans and Ray Nagin had been the mayor of New York, ah, 9/11 would have resulted, ah, there would still be looting and anarchism up there and Katrina would be all, all fixed up. That's what leadership is." Kinky Freidman in a discussion about the presidential candidates, Your World w/Neil Cavuto 9/6/07

Option C: "(Bin Laden) seemed to adopt the very same language that is being used by the hard left in this country as he describes what's going on in Iraq as a civil war, he actually used the term 'neocons,' he talks about global warming, he demonizes capitalism and corporations in this whole thing - very, very specific language." Sean Hannity likened Bin Laden to Democrats, H&C 9/7/07

Option D: "Paul Krugman is a vile person, I know him personally." Bill "We don't do personal attacks" O'Reilly on Radio Factor, 9/8/07

Option E: "It would be a disaster. The jolly green giant may be good on TV but he would be a disaster on Wall Street. The only industry that would benefit would be bicycle makers. Wall Street would see green -- grass in the streets. The only global warming would be financial market meltdowns because of his excess taxes and regulations." [...] Gore, "[L]ikes the profits of big buginess, when he sits on the boards and covers up for mismanagement." Steve Forbes, in a discussion about whether an Al Gore presidency would be "good or bad" for Wall Street, Forbes on Fox 9/8/07 (It should be noted that Steve Forbes is Co-Chair of Republican Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign)

Option F: He would be, "Bad. I think he's unhinged. I think that he looks like an evil character in a Batman movie. There's something strange about the guy lately." Rich Karlgaard in that same "discussion" about whether an Al Gore presidency would be good or bad for Wall Street, Forbes on Fox 9/8/07
