For the last several weeks, we’ve had some pretty predictable winners of our Fox News Outrageous Quote of the Week Poll. But this week, I'm not so sure. Our subjects include Catholicism, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, the New York Times, dissing Americans who support raising the minimum wage and more – plus a foul-mouthed partying babe who helped Fox ring in 2014. Put your thinking caps on!
And the nominees are…
Angela McGlowan, dissing the 66% of Americans who support raising the minimum wage: “I think the Americans that were actually polled did not make a payroll.”
Charles Payne, discussing liberal Bill de Blasio, the day before he was sworn in as Mayor of New York:
“You may pay the price no matter what city you live in.
…Why in this amazing, successful city a rejection of capitalism? Why in Chile – probably one of the best economies in South America, a rejection of capitalism? Why is the pope coming out, why is he saying capitalism is mean spirited? Where is this coming from and could it spread across this country?
…Capitalism needs a new PR strategy or, maybe to your earlier point, we’re all doomed, all doomed.”
Charles Gasparino, defending his faith, despite disagreeing with Pope Francis’ comments about capitalism: “I’m a card-carrying Catholic, I believe in the good lord and I always say ‘Merry Christmas’ but no system in the world has put food in people’s mouths more than capitalism. Surely not the Catholic Church. Capitalism has done it.”
Fox News banner, from a segment about the supposed wussification of American men yet alluding to a Village People song that pays homage to gays: “Macho, Macho Men, What Kind of Guy is a Real Man?”
Partying babe, interviewed as part of Fox’s “All-American New Year’s Eve” show: “We’ve got five minutes of 2014 (sic) and we’re gonna f*** s*** up!”
Bill O’Reilly, offering one of his reasons why the New York Times’ in-depth Benghazi investigation should not be trusted: The Times “has become deeply invested in changing America into a secular progressive country.”
Megyn Kelly (who insists she’s not an opinion host) to her guest, a lawyer challenging the requirements of the Obama administration for a religious exemption to the contraception mandate: “Talk about being on the side of the angels!”
And by the way, choosing the week’s winner (or loser) gets harder when Caribou Barbie isn’t in the running.
And they know it…..
All those people with eyes to see and ears to hear and the moron still rattles on. That must be a mighty fine pay check.
Anyway, it’s people like he who cause revolutions by creating the cobwebs that keep the have-nots in check.
Happy New Year to all the hounds. Always enjoy passing by even if I don’t pause to comment.
