You're all in for a treat today. This blog will contain the words of wisdom from my seven FAVORITE people in the world: Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson. There are seven of them and while yes, Coulter is a woman (I think), she disrespects women and their rights, so I think it's fair for me to group her in with the six other (Un)Wise Men. I also tried to find quotes from Chris Mathews, Joe Scarborough, and Oliver North, but couldn't find many. Just a warning and heads up to all those who read this. Some of the following quotes are rather disturbing and offensive, so be prepared and I, in no way, shape, or form had anything to do with these quotes. I can't stand these seven individuals. I'm merely laying out their words to illustrate how ridiculous they are. Included in the list will be stupid quotes, disturbing ones, along with a few that are simply outrageous. Most of the quotes are listed with a source. For those that aren't, I have all the links where I found the quotes at the very end of this blog. If there are any that I missed (and I'm sure there are), feel free to post others you've heard or read. Here are the quotes, in random order:

"When contemplating college liberals, you really regret once again that John Walker is not getting the death penalty. We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed, too. Otherwise, they will turn out to be outright traitors." - Ann Coulter, at the Conservative Political Action Conference 26 February, 2002

"I'm going to tell you, what's good for al-Qaeda is good for the Democratic Party in this country today. That's how you boil this down. And it doesn't have to be al-Qaeda.

"I'll tell you who should be tortured and killed at Guantanamo: every filthy Democrat in the U.S. Congress." - Sean Hannity, Hannity and Colmes, June 15, 2005

"Finally, the ACLU -- we talked about this yesterday and I -- and, you know, I have to pick on the ACLU because they're the most dangerous organization in the United States of America right now.

"And one of the things that -- that the -- the AIDS activists said regularly back then was, oh, this is only a matter of time before it spreads to the heterosexual community. It's only a matter of time. And they used that as -- as one of the weapons to try to get people like Reagan to start talking about it from their standpoint. And of course it -- it hasn't. It -- it didn't, and it hasn't, other than in Africa, and in Africa it is -- it is being spread not just by -- it -- it -- it's promiscuity that -- that -- that spreads this, if you want to know the truth.

"It's hard to do it because you gotta look people in the eye and tell 'em they're irresponsible and lazy. And who's gonna wanna do that? Because that's what poverty is, ladies and gentlemen.

"[P]eople talk about the potential for good that can come from destroying these little embryos and how we might be able to solve the problem of juvenile diabetes. There's no indication yet that they're gonna do that, but people say that, or spinal cord injuries or such things.

"[T]he boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger." - James Dobson (June 2002 Newsletter)

And, "We have enough votes to run this country...and when the people say, 'We've had enough,' we're going to take over!" - Pat Robertson

"They found three massive underground tanks, each 60 feet long, 10 feet high, each with about 100 marijuana plants growing inside.

The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way—all of them who have tried to secularize America—I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen." - Jerry Falwell, on the terrorist attacks of the 11th of September 2001, The 700 Club (13 September 2001).

“It’s amazing that the Constitution of the United States says nothing about the separation of church and state. Thatphrase does appear, however, in the Soviet Constitution, which says the state shall be separate from the church andthe church from the school.

"The Democrats are giving aid and comfort to the enemy for no purpose other than giving aid and comfort to the enemy. There is no plausible explanation for the Democrats' behavior other than that they long to see U.S. troops shot, humiliated, and driven from the field of battle. They fill the airwaves with treason, but when called to vote on withdrawing troops, disavow their own public statements. These people are not only traitors, they are gutless traitors. New Idea for Abortion Party: Aid the Enemy." - Ann Coulter, November 23, 2005

"We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.

And this is war." - Ann Coulter, from her syndicated column, 13 September, 2001

"I mean, why didn't these morons leave New Orleans before the hurricane? I'll tell you why: because they wanted to rape and loot! That's just the way some people are! And if they're black--if the rapists and looters are black--it's not George Bush's fault! We've had these problems ever since the Emancipation Proclamation. Once the whites leave town, all you've got is overwhelming lawlessness. That's not racism, Mr. Snerdley; it's a proven, demonstrable fact. Have you even seen a ghetto in Greenwich, Connecticut? I rest my case." - Rush Limbaugh [12 September 2005]

“[Tolerance is a] kind of watchword of those who reject the concept of right and wrong…. It’s a kind of adesensitization to evil of all varieties. Everything has become acceptable to those who are tolerant.” - James Dobson, Focus On The Family radio broadcast, Nov. 4, 1996

God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet--it's yours. That's our job: drilling, mining and stripping. Sweaters are the anti-Biblical view.

Even he has to know that calling the president of the United States an "F" is not going to be accepted by most Americans. Now you don't see this kind of thing on the Right.

"Presbyterians are the spirit of the Antichrist." - Pat Robertson (The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, p. 239)

"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again.

Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."- Pat Robertson (Interview with Molly Ivins)

"Will African-Americans break away from the pack thinking and reject immorality-- because that's the reason the family's breaking apart--alcohol, drugs, infidelity.

"Which brings me to this week's scandal about No Such Agency spying on "Americans."

"I think the other point that no one is making about the abuse photos is just the disproportionate number of women involved, including a girl general running the entire operation. I mean, this is lesson, you know, number 1,000,047 on why women shouldn't be in the military. In addition to not being able to carry even a medium-sized backpack, women are too vicious." - Ann Coulter, from Hannity & Colmes, 5 May, 2004

“[The separation of church and state] was never in the Constitution. However much the liberals laugh at me forsaying it, they know good and well it was never in the Constitution!

"Conservatives believe man was created in God's image, while liberals believe they are gods. All of the behavioral tics of the liberals proceed from their godless belief that they can murder the unborn because they, the liberals, are themselves gods. They try to forcibly create 'equality' through affirmative action and wealth redistribution because they are gods. They flat-out lie, with no higher power to constrain them, because they are gods. They adore pornography and the mechanization of sex because man is just an animal, and they are gods. They revere the UN and not the U.S. because they aren't Americans -- they are gods." - Ann Coulter

"Here at the Spawn of Satan convention in Boston, conservatives are deploying a series of covert signals to identify one another, much like gay men do. My allies are the ones wearing crosses or American flags. The people sporting shirts emblazened with the "F-word" are my opponents. Also, as always, the pretty girls and cops are on my side, most of them barely able to conceal their eye-rolling." - Ann Coulter, opening paragraph of a column that USA Today dropped after an "editing dispute" (26 July, 2004)

"It is interesting, that termites don't build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into (our) institutions (today) are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have.... The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation." - Pat Robertson, New York Magazine, August 18, 1986

"It is clear that God is saying, 'I gave man dominion over the earth, but he lost it.

Rule as I would rule.'" - Pat Robertson, The Secret Kingdom

“You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if [President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela] thinks we’re trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It’s a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. And I don’t think any oil shipments will stop. [...] We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.” - Pat Robertson, 22 August 2005, in a broadcast of his Christian Broadcasting Network's program, The 700 Club
