Thanks for that.
Especially liked the donkey... not personally, you understand.
When I read that one, I thought, "But what if you don't own a donkey? Is it mandatory?"
oddly, it was the canada/thanksgiving one that gave me the biggest frown. not on behalf of canada, but to the idea that we don't take the retarded seriously.
Yeah, that's the thing about right-wingers: offensive on so many levels.
I remember hearing that broadcast; I nearly choked on my scrambled eggs.
Stunning. And slightly depressing.
My good laugh tonight was with:
I have in laws from a particular state which I'll not mention (its initials are AR) who are crazy about this guy. Come to think of it, they may just be crazy.
Thanks for that great article, IJ.
Our old friend Ann is always good for an absolutely despicable quote. Here are a few of her others from this year:
Link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4.
Bet it'd take me only another 10 minutes to find a bunch of outrageous O'Reilly quotes as well.
Three names sprang out -
Rush Limbaugh, Bill Bennett and Ann Coulter
They seriously need to get lives.
The Neal Boortz quote was quite funny - if you look at the humour ( i.e., don't take the quote seriously ).
Yeah that Boortz is quite a cut-up. A real life of the party sort of guy.
Wow! That's quite a list. My favorite is Tucker Carlson. Has he seen Canada's economy lately? GDP's over $1T.
And Canada's got a trade surplus, which puts them roughly eleventy gazillion dollars ahead of the US in that department.
These ones could be objectively true, though not due to racial differences as the speakers are almost certainly trying to imply.
If you aborted everyone then you wouldn't have any crime at all.
The quote referred to the crime rate, not absolute incidents. If you killed off / aborted a sufficiently large random sample of the population, the number of crimes would decrease, but the crime rate would remain the same (barring other external factors).
(Incidentally, if you were to kill off everyone, there would be no crime rate, as any attempt to calculate one would result in a divide-by-zero.)
Who is this Ann person and why would anyone give her a microphone?
Because it's freedom of speech.
What that intended as a serious answer or a joke?
A joke. I meant that anyone can pick up a mic and say anything, at least in the US.
That only means the government can't tell her what she can and can't say. People can still tell her to shut up. And throw pies at her.
And nobody is obligated to give her a megaphone. The fact that anyone does is the sad part.
People always stop to look at a car wreck.
and cause other wrecks...
What it's not, "Eye Car Rum Bar?"
I am stuck in the 20th century.
