I’m a day late on this one due to some technical issues I was having yesterday. But some things are worth waiting for and I think you’ll enjoy this current crop of outrageousness as much as ever. However, we need you to do more than just read and laugh and/or shudder. We need your vote. Because while many can be nominated, only one can be The Fox News Outrageous Quote Of The Week.
And the nominees are…
Steve Doocy, missing the irony, when he said that even though 2016 is a few years away, “(T)hat’s not stopping one of America’s biggest and most biased network from jumping on the Hillary Clinton bandwagon.”
Bill O’Reilly, displaying his keen insight into the African American community, to Al Sharpton: “Your day is done.”
Sarah Palin, on the Tea Party plan to defund Obamacare by threatening to shut down the government:
That’s common sense. …Congress holds the purse strings. They can unfund anything they want to and that’s how you stop something that is not right, it’s not good, it’s not economic for we the people. So it’s a wise decision for Mr. Lee and others to decide not to budget for something that’s gonna be so burdensome to the American people.
Juan Williams defending O’Reilly’s surprise that “there wasn’t one person” in Sylvia’s restaurant in Harlem screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea’”: “O’Reilly, in fact, in the whole episode at Sylvia’s …was going on about defeating racial stereotypes in this society.”
Chris Plante, on an upcoming Hillary Clinton biopic: “Casting Diane Lane as - the lovely Diane Lane as Hillary Clinton is enough of a tip off as to where this is going to go. You know, personally, I would cast Philip Seymour Hoffman to play Hillary Clinton. But this is like casting Angelina Jolie to play Monica Lewinsky or something.”
Bill O’Reilly: “I don’t think (Obama thinks) America’s a bad nation. But I could be wrong on that.”
Not only is his support of Bildo’s ignorance outrageous, it also lends credence to the Fox meme that black folks just don’t realize that racism is over. No longer need the black man fear the white cracker….it’s all just a little misunderstanding.
Juan said: “…was going on about defeating racial stereotypes in this society.”

No Juan, he wasn’t trying to defeat racial stereotypes, he was confused that his own prejudices weren’t being fulfilled. The only racial stereotypes were O’Reilly’s stereotypes of black folks.
