- Welcome to “They Said What?!” – a recurring monthly entry that highlights all the fantastically stupid things (and sometimes just fantastic things) said by politicians, celebrities, journalists, bloggers and anyone else who happens to wander into the headlights of the ‘LameStream’ media. Be sure to check any links I put in the comments of each quote — often times there is an ‘Easter Egg’ type chuckle.
Warning: Some links contain NSFW language and/or imagery.
Obama’s Greatest Hits:
Harry Reid: “Millionaire job creators are like unicorns: they’re impossible to find and don’t exist.” Go back to your Cowboy paintings, Harry.
Sheila Jackson Lee: “We saw what happened when Iran took hostages in 1979. A president lost his re-election. The prestige of the United States was challenged. I am not going to be taken hostage again to extend the Bush tax cuts when every economist says that it’s absolutely absurd forever and points to the fact that no jobs are necessarily created by extending the Bush tax cuts, at least on the top one percent of Americans, and when the top one percent population polled have said that they have no problem with losing that ludicrous benefit forever and ever. And then, when everyone understands the question of mutual sacrifice, benefit and sacrifice, with all of our soldiers coming home we’re now going to talk about being held hostage to the Bush tax cuts forever.” I can barely stop laughing at the excess of hyperbole and bad analogizing here. If you didn’t get enough of her brilliance, you can see how she thinks Occupy is bringing the nation together here.
The Wasserbeast: “And the leadership in the Republican Party has ceded its leadership to a fringe element that is totally out of step with the American people. ‘My way or the highway politics’ Chuck, and I just talked about this in my district in south Florida again, with CEOs in Broward County — ‘my way or the highway politics’ is the wrong way to go. It can’t always be my way. I’m not going to get my way 100% of the time. But we need to strike a balance where when we compromise everyone gives a little. What have the Republicans proposed to give throughout this whole process? Nothing.” Delusional. Utterly and totally. She’s also a pisk.
Oh, delusional Debbie also had this to say: “They know they can’t win elections on the merits, so they’re trying to rig elections by blocking people’s access to the polls,” Wasserman Schultz charged. I guess that’s why we’re pushing for Voter ID? Dolt.
Hank Johnson:“I think this is another manufactured controversy by the second amendment, NRA Republican tea party movement,” Johnson said. Of course it is and those 200 dead Mexicans and dead US border agent are just for show. Jackwagon.
Princess Pelosi: “I think that we must — we must — pass the unemployment insurance. I do not think it should be paid for because it is, again, it is something that people, that is paid into and now we should, for many reasons, not pay for it.” Bat…Shit….Crazy! At least we know what is in this one.
Jesse Jackson: “Jesus was an Occupier, born under a death warrant, a Jew by religion, born in poverty under Roman occupation,” Jackson told the 200-person crowd in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral Thursday, MSNBC reported. ”Gandhi was an Occupier, Martin Luther King was an Occupier, [Nelson] Mandela was an Occupier.” Oh Lord…I half expected him to start yelling about “YOU PEOPLE!!!“
Babs Boxer: “They have attached a poison pill — literally, colleagues — because it will kill 8,100 more people more than would have otherwise been killed from pollution,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Cali.) said on the Senate floor today about Republicans trying to roll back a Clean Air Act provision.
Liberals, Loons and Celebs:
Alec “I Shoulda Reprised Jack Ryan” Baldwin: “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950′s find jobs as flight attendants.” What a spoiled, rude little pig he is.
Michael Moore – 1% Occupier: “Well, “The Washington post” three weeks ago had this investigation and they said that President Obama has now raised more money from Wall Street and the banks for this election cycle than all — than all eight Republicans combined. I don’t want to say that, because if that’s the truth, that Wall Street already has their man and his name is Barack Obama, then we’ve got a much bigger problem.“ Maybe the raving lard ass is starting to figure it out. Then again, he also thinks having a roof over one’s head is a right.
Olbermann: “Yeah it boils down th the fact that I have to say that in everything we talk about, we kid a lot. But I find Pam Geller [sic] to be really, really, truly terrifying. I think the stuff she does is dangerous.” Yes, refusing to be silenced by dhimmis like you is really dangerous stuff. What channel is that show of yours on again?
Mike Malloy: “And then this miserable son of a bitch has the audacity to go to a homeless shelter? It’s a wonder somebody didn’t hold his head down in a vat of turkey gravy until he stopped squiggling! He goes to a homeless shelter and talks about how he cares…? Mmm-hmm!” What a shining example of Lefty tolerance and civility.
Maria Conchita Alonzo: “Sean Penn is a Communist Asshole”. Hell Yes, Sister! We needed that.
Our Man Maher gets his own section:
Not a peep from Maher this month. Someone check Hell.. did it freeze over?
The MSNBC Moron Roundup:
Ed Schultz: “Now, since, I know that Anderson Cooper floats around in that GQ crowd. I don‘t know if he’s behind it or whether their publicist at CNN or, but let me just say, I’m kicking his ass…” Really? Anderson Cooper had an answer for Ed: BRING IT, BITCH I think the Rock said it better though.
Tingles Gets Owned by Simon Conway: “Well, there isn’t one. There isn’t one. I just want to make sure we’re starting with some honesty. You’re clearly working for the re-election of Barack Obama.” Ya got rick rolled, there Tingles!
Meghan McRino: “I think she’s… this is going to get me in trouble, but I actually think she’s just more smarter,” explained McCain. And apparently a lot ‘more smarter’ than you too, dear.
