“How long is it going to be before we are told that embryonic stem cell research may hold the clues to solving global warming?”
“The liberals do not care that this resolution feeds the propaganda mill of the enemy. They don’t care that General Petraeus has said it will demoralize the troops. This is all about playing politics with the troops. And this is something that continually needs hammering.”
“The American people are sick and tired, I maintain, of Democrats talking about how victory is impossible. We’re the United States of America! The idea that we can’t win is just anathema and offensive to the majority of Americans.”
“Nobody will convince me otherwise of this: liberals in this country rejoice at military failure. Any time the military fails they can say, ‘See! That’s not the way to do this! Diplomacy!'”
“‘A conservative version of Islam’? Would somebody tell me what is conservative about a bunch of people that want to blow themselves up and claim victory?”

“Ha, ha, ha! ‘What’s so funny about it, Mr. Limbaugh?’ What’s so funny about it is: just eat what you want and die when you’re going to. It’s going to happen to all of us. I mean, people have been eating bacon and eggs for breakfast their whole lives.”
“The best and loudest message you can send to any of these cut-and-run Republicans is to not send them any money. And when they send you solicitations for money, send it back with a picture of your rear end on it.”

“President Clinton is a big fan of ’24.’ He told TV advertisers that his favorite show is the chick soap opera Grey’s Anatomy. He also likes Boston Legal. I have to tell you, I’m a little worried because these are three of my favorite shows. I know I used to make fun of Grey’s Anatomy, but you get hooked on it.”

“Look at the current Republican field, and it’s like the buffet at Denny’s: There’s a little something that you like about everything, but you don’t want the whole thing.”

“A programming note here, ladies and gentlemen. We may not, even though I sort of committed to it, get to the incredibly boring and dull Chuck Hagel sound bites. Remain calm out there. Do not do anything drastic.”


“AP story: ‘Researchers in a giant panda reserve in China are looking for paper mills to process their surplus of fiber-rich panda excrement into high quality paper.’ My hope is that one day the New York Times decides to print its daily edition on paper madefrom panda poop. Then I can say, ‘The New York Times? I don’t read that crap!'”

“I’m not going to tell you what every meal is here on my diet, and no, I’m not going to post the menu on the website. Somebody will do it and they’ll die, and I’ll get sued.”

“The 12th imam is holed up in a well. Honest to God. Honest, folks: the 12th imam’s holed up in a well and can’t get out until the terrifying end days. No, Snerdley, it’s not an oil well.”

“By virtue of consensus, I am America’s most accurate media figure. People who disagree are Rush Deniers.”

“Well, goody, goody. Yeah, we’re going to run the foreign policy of the US on ‘hope.’ You are totally delusional, Madame Speaker. Do you think Bashir Assad has the slightest idea of dealing with you as the leader of this country? You are a pawn, and he recognizes it!”

“Does anybody think that 15 United States Marines would just sit there, allow themselves to be taken when they had not invaded Iranian waters, and in two days start apologizing on Iranian TV? No way. Semper fi. No way.”

“Anything you can do to make yourself feel better — such as buying one of those cockamamie light bulbs — you’ll do it. Everybody wants to feel good, everybody wants to matter, everybody wants to make a difference. Well, just remember: Hitler made a difference, too.”

“You would be surprised at the number of Americans whose only source of news is the nightly newscasts. Now, they’re primarily elderly; you can see that by looking at the commercials. I don’t mean forthis to sound funny (even though it is), but the commercials are for burial plots and Preparation H.”

“This segment is going to be short, and I apologize for that, folks. It’s not good to have such short segments, but in the midst of brilliant monologues, there’s no reason to cut them short.”

“I talked to my mother every day when I moved to New York. After awhile I said, ‘You know, Mom, I guess it was a pretty good day: half the country hates my guts again.’ She would laugh: ‘No, they don’t!’ And I said, ‘Well, maybe not half, but a decent number of them do.'”

“I don’t want to have conservatism redefined so that it fits the mold of a particular candidate who is not conservative. Conservatism is the key here, and somebody who could articulate it with vigor would own the country.”

“You people watching here on the Dittocam at RushLimbaugh.com may have seen this. I put a little polar bear doll in my microphone boom. It’s my effort to campaign for the Nobel Peace Prize, to indicate that I have compassion and understanding for the plight of the polar bears.”

“Well, poor old Rudy Giuliani: they asked him what a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk costs, and he didn’t know. What’s so funny in there? ‘Just ask the wife’? That’s a real sexist comment, Brian.”

“Reporters need to come up with a new question, such as: ‘What do you think one of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits cost?’ It’s probably pretty cheap since she probably buys them by the gross. Don’t like that comment, Dawn? Ooh, I hit a nerve.”

“There’s a Drive-By Media scandal happening out there with Katie Couric’s ‘Notebook,’ and I guess it’s on the CBS website. I don’t think these things are part of the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, but I haven’t watched it since last September. Good point, neither has anybody else.”

“H.R. just said, ‘At least CBS is improving; they didn’t forge Katie Couric’s essay.’ Ha, ha!Good one! ‘At least they didn’t forge it.’ No, they just plagiarized it. They’re moving up in the world.”

“Clich after clich after clich from Nancy Pelosi: ‘Let’s have dialogue.’ Any recent news stories, folks, where dialogue is solving the problem? Is there?”

“Partisanship is when Democrats aren’t the only voices. Bipartisanship is when Republicans shut up and adopt the Democrat voice.”

“I am going to suggest here that Mr. Frank Coletta — at the powerhouse NBC affiliate in Providence, Rhode Island — resign. He was a 2001 Columbus Day grand marshal, and we all know about Columbus: he brought us racism, homophobia, smallpox… you could trace the beginnings of Halliburton back to Columbus’ arrival.”

“TV anchors do look alike. There’s a cookie-cutter formula; they all look like Ken dolls. Have you ever seen a bald anchor? You have to have at least a 13-inch part in your hair to get a Drive-By anchor job.”

“So it may well be that we misidentified the anchor who did the report on me. Cookie, you know, this would be easy for me to blame you, and a lesser boss would. But everybody can make a mistake — except me.”

“Now the Democrats are subpoenaing Condoleezza Rice! By the way, look at the trees that we are destroying –subpoenas are paper. And this is a supposed environmental crowd.”

“So the Democrats are going to go to the ‘gay debate’ on the Logo network. I didn’t even know there was such a network. Is it on DirecTV? I’ll have to check the listings.”

“I am not going to have any bureaucrat or company tell me how little or much toilet paper I can use! This stuff is getting out of hand. I’m close to profanity here.”

“Boy, I’ll tell you, I would not want to be Pakistan’s president today, Pervez Musharraf. Poor guy wakes up today and learns that Barack Obama wants to invade his country.”

“Would somebody explain to me why anybody ever listened to Louis Farrakhan?”

“Look at all of the names that George Bush has been called, all the things he’s been accused of. And what does he do? He ignores it and stays focused on his job. The Washington Post runs a little piece on Mrs. Clinton’s cleavage, and it’s, ‘Stop the presses!'”

“The media keeps saying Mrs. Clinton ‘hasn’t made any mistakes on the campaign trail.’ Translation: ‘She hasn’t made any mistakes that we’re going to tell you about.'”
