This Week In Quotes: Nov 12-18

It’s similarly pointless to treat all Americans as if they’re potential terrorists while trying to find and confiscate anything that could be used as a weapon. We can’t search all passengers for explosives because Muslims stick explosives up their anuses. (Talk about jobs Americans just won’t do.)

You have to search for the terrorists.

Fortunately, that’s the one advantage we have in this war. In a lucky stroke, all the terrorists are swarthy, foreign-born, Muslim males. (Think: “Guys Madonna would date.”)

This would give us a major leg up — if only the country weren’t insane. — Ann Coulter

Saying “no taxpayer funded abortion and weed for everyone” is all well and good until it happens. Then the rest of society is forced to pay to pick up the pieces of the potheads. Therefore, you have much more government in the end. — Erick Erickson

Some years down the pike, we’re going to get the real solution, which is going to be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It’s going to be that we’re actually going to take Medicare under control, and we’re going to have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT. —
Paul Krugman

I’m wildly excited that I can walk through a machine instead of getting my dose of love pats. — Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri

Oooh, you’re so strong, baby, so handsome. You’re the greatest.

I’m talking about you, America. You’re . . . why, you’re exceptional!

Does anyone else think there’s something a little insecure about a country that requires its politicians to constantly declare how exceptional it is? A populace in need of this much reassurance may be the surest sign of looming national decline. — Matt Miller

[T]he populace is giving up more rights in the name of alleged security. These body scanners are a violation of the Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures … There must be a better way to have security at airports than taking pornographic photographs of our citizens, including children, and then giving apparent kickbacks to political hacks. — Rep. Ted Poe (Texas)

There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future. — Jay Rockefeller

If you’ve flown lately, the odds are good that you had a rubber-gloved Transportation Security Administration agent touch you in places that would otherwise result in the issuance of an arrest warrant for unwanted groping. Even so, despite years of imposing increasingly invasive new security procedures, the TSA has yet to catch one terrorist. — The San Francisco Examiner

We’ve passed major pieces of legislation. Four pieces that will go down in history as one of the most significant Congresses we’ve had. But two of them — the TARP — which was passed by the previous Congress but it gets attributed to us, and the stimulus prevented bad things from happening. There are about ten million people probably who are working now who would not have been had we not passed those laws but they don’t know who they are. — Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Today China has not only a more vigorous economy, but actually a better functioning government than the United States. — George Soros

I don’t think that the government has any business seeing me naked as a condition of traveling about the country. — John Tyner

If you touch my junk, I’m going to have you arrested. — John Tyner

I’ve covered the Hill for about 16 years. The effect this place has, especially [on] men who come to Washington who are away from their families and the behavior you see at night is the behavior you often saw from our friends in college. Especially unattractive members of the Congress who have not had women show attention to them maybe since college. They come here. Power is an aphrodisiac. Suddenly they have women who are interested in them. It’s a temptation some can’t withstand. — Jim VandeHei

Once freedom at airports is “locked down,” it’s inevitable that TSA will next target buses, trains and the Metro. After all, al Qaeda has attacked each of these modes of transportation in other parts of the world. Strict controls on internal travel is the hallmark of a police state. — Washington Times
