Quote of the Week (Honorable Mention)


"Your idea is that after investigating Bill Clinton for a blow job for like five years, we shouldn't investigate the huge, grossly illegal things that were done under the past administration."

-- Marcy Wheeler of FireDogLake.com, live on MSNBC yesterday afternoon

Needless to say, MSNBC's Tamron Hall and David Shuster quickly apologized on behalf of Wheeler, saying that she was simply being "passionate" about her argument. So, to recap: Neo-Nazi Crypt Keeper Pat Buchanan can recommend drowning Levi Johnston on national television and everyone on MS gets a good laugh out of it -- but say a naughty word and suddenly the protectors of America's family-friendly sensibilities feel like they have to trip over their Cole Haans and Manolo Blahniks to offer their sincerest regrets. Weird.

Sex, bad. Violence, good.

Of course if Levi Johnston had just gotten a damned blow job he wouldn't have mattered politically anyway.

...and suddenly the Exploited's Sex and Violence is ringing in my ears :)

@S.L.W: Ha!

I wonder if Monica Lewinsky ever referenced it as a "huge, grossly illegal thing"...

I had to read the quote twice to figure out what the bad word was... *sigh*

I'm with you Alex. I had to read the quote again after Chez stated that there was a "bad word". It still took me a few moments to parse afterward.

Focus on Family and other such groups are allowed far to much power over our media. And yes, I do mean "allowed." If we ignored them like we should, they would have no power whatsoever.

This is the first good idea Pat Buchanan has had in a long time, and you criticize it. Come on, Chez, be bi-partisan! :-)
