  Clinton: “Like Jesus in the Temple”
"When I watched him [former President Bill Clinton] at Mrs. King’s funeral, I just have never seen anything like it....There are times when he sounds like Jesus in the temple. I mean, amazing ability to transcend ethnicity — race, we call it, it’s really ethnicity — in this country and, and speak to us all in this amazingly primordial way."
-- Chris Matthews, Hardball, MSNBC, February 28, 2007.

America Ferrera: "Wow, that is interesting."
Braff: "So do you think that you have any traits in common with the country that is your namesake?"
Ferrera: "Well, you know, I mean I guess I'm a free-spirited person and America's supposedly the 'land of the free,' right?"
Braff: "Well, I guess."
Ferrera: "Or at least we will be in 2008." [loud applause] Well how about you, Zach, I mean do you have anything in common with Israel?"
Braff: "Let me see. Well, I'm predominantly Jewish, I'm very hot and all of my neighbors hate me. So yeah." [audience laughter]

  Maher: Bush 'a Gilligan Who Cannot Find His Ass with Two Hands'
Bill Maher: “Political comedy is effective in inverse proportion the competence of the leader.”
Host Leno:
“Well, that's true. That's true.”
Maher:
“In other words, the bigger the fool, the easier for us. And this man, come on, let's get real. I mean, Joe Scarborough did a whole week of panel discussions on whether he was an idiot [audience laughter ]. Seriously. And when you've lost Scarborough Country, I mean -- and I think the science is in on this question.”
Leno:
“Yeah, yeah.”
Maher:
“I mean, I think he is -- the people who were defending him were saying, 'well, he's just inarticulate.' But inarticulate doesn't explain foreign policy. I mean, it's not that complicated. The man is a rube. He is a dolt. He is a yokel on the world stage. He is a Gilligan who cannot find his ass with two hands [audience applause]. He is a vain half-wit who interrupts one incoherent sentence with another incoherent sentence [cheers and applause]. And I hope I'm not piling on, Jay.”
-- The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC, Feb 20, 2007.

  Iran No Worse Than America
"A war of words, Wolf, heating up between the United States and Iran. U.S. officials yesterday showing off what they call a growing body of evidence that Iranian weapons are being used to kill coalition soldiers in Iraq. They say that Iran is making the violence worse there by providing Shiite groups with technology, money, and training.... Reminiscent, Wolf, of the war in Afghanistan, when Russia invaded. It seems to me we were, the United States was supplying weapons and intelligence and things like that to the Afghan rebels....So, that was okay but it’s not okay if Iran — I’m, I’m confused, Wolf."

  A Message from Mr. Tolerance
"Look at the little empires that people like James Dobson or Pat Robertson run. They are despotic, Third World fiefdoms where these guys fly around with bodyguards and Lear jets and amass hundreds of millions of dollars taken from people who live on the margins of American society...The image that they present of Jesus and of the Christian is essentially a warrior cult. I mean, it is that obsession with violence, it’s that notion that America can use its imperial power and use its violence to create a Christian society. They condemn...other religion as satanic, I mean, they’re constantly blasting Islam, nominal Christians, liberals. It is a message that’s deeply anti-Christian and I think filled with a lot of bigotry and a lot of intolerance."
-- Former New York Times reporter Chris Hedges, author of the book American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America, Colbert Report, Comedy Central, February 8, 2007.

  MRC’s Bozell on FNC’s Hannity & Colmes About NY Times Photo of Dying Soldier
“Look and there’s no disagreement on this whatsoever or the New York Times Wouldn’t have apologized for it. If you want to be an embedded soldier you agree to those things.

But you’re not going to go as an embedded soldier.”
