“To the liberals — I don’t care what it is — if the earth wobbles on its axis, we have to talk to Karl Rove. These guys have Rove-itis.”

“Let me ask you a question. The term ‘magic negro’ has been thrown into the presidential race by an LA Times columnist, David Ehrenstein. Now, if I keep referring to Obama as the ‘magic negro’ from this day on, do you think I will eventually get the credit and/or heat for this?”

“I just saw a fund-raising ad for the National Resources Defense Council with two polar bears on that ice floe, and as the commercial proceeds, the ice floe melts into the letters ‘SOS.’ These creeps.”

“I predict to you that if the surge is ultimately victorious, and if Baghdad is someday rendered peaceful, that will not be big news, either. It’ll be clouded by how long it took, how many deaths were necessary to secure it, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.”

“It’s one thing to be called a ‘sheet head’ when you’re a Muslim and not wearing a towel on your head, but can you imagine the humiliation of going toShamu Stadium in Orlando at Sea World and having the American flag pop up?”

“It’s the LA Times and the left who are raising questions about the authenticity of who’s black enough — it is dehumanizing, it is demeaning, and it is racist — and yet the NAALCP stands mute out there.”

“The caddies yesterday couldn’t read a green to save their lives. I finally blew up at them on the 18th hole. I missed a read by three feet! Should have followed my instincts. Never forget that: ‘Always follow your instincts.'”

“It’s just remarkable to continue to witness the actual racism that exists on the left, such as using the term ‘magic negro’ to apply to Obama. I’m singing a song in my head here: ‘Barack the magic negro, doo, doo, doo, doo.’ Uh-oh, Dawn is shaking her head on that.”

“Let’s ban all immigration, legal and illegal. Doesn’t that make as much sense as saying, ‘Ban all guns’?”

“Last week, the First Amendment was under assault. This week, the Second Amendment is under assault. Media templates have been set in stone. It is terrible how an event like this can be so contorted to meet a political end. But that is the primary reason for all of the coverage is to meet a political end.”

“One of the reasons I didn’t talk much about this yesterday was because it was all breaking at the time, and had I echoed what I was seeing in the Drive-By Media yesterday, I would have been wrong in part.”

“Some people are calling it a ‘tragedy.’ I’m even having a problem with calling it a tragedy. A tragedy is a tornado or a hurricane running you down. This is an act of pure evil.”

“This doesn’t happen every day in this country. This is not what America is. This event does not provide a microcosm of the evils and horrors of American society.”

“You’ve got this kid that went nuts here for whatever reason, in a suicide note, railing against ‘rich kids’ and the debauchery of society. Wait ’til the Drive-Bys pick up on that and start extrapolating that into the other templates that exist in their newsrooms as to what’s wrong with American society.”

“Exactly what kind of gun control are they talking about now, as they attempt to politicize this — and when I say ‘they’ today I’m talking about the media. I’m talking about the Drive-By Media and the Democrat Party.”

“This is pure evil on parade, or insanity, and it’s self-contained within the mind and the body of the shooter. It was a sick, evil act, very much like that of a suicide bomber. We have to face that head-on and deal with that, not hide under our covers in fear and blame and guilt and start asking what’s wrong with America.”

“The two biggest acts of terrorism in this country occurred with box cutters, pocketknives, gasoline, and fertilizer — 9/11 and Oklahoma City — not guns.”

“Sheryl Crow and Laurie David, I will promise to underwrite the rest of your global warming bus tour so long as at every appearance, every television show, and every concert you continue to advocate the single-square-of-toilet-paper solution to global warming.”

“Sheryl Crow, let me just warn you about something: if you actually try this — only use one square of toilet paper for every bathroom visit — the only thing you’re going to be attracting in the next couple of days is flies.”

“If it could be shown that Al Gore and Rosie O’Donnell will only use one square of toilet paper, then I’ll join this club. But the dirty little secret is I have a bidet. I’ve never figured out how to use the stupid thing, though; they were put in when I had no choice in the matter.”

“White House Correspondents Dinner is an event for politicians; it’s their Hollywood night, it’s their Oscars — that’s why they have certain Hollywood entertainers show up. The big name this year was that loser from American Idol, Sanjaya. Is that his name?”

“I just got a note from a friend of mine: ‘I didn’t know that was what a bidet was for. I use it as my dog’s drinking fountain.’ I tried that with my cat, Punkin, but it’s not a full stream, so she wouldn’t have anything to do with it.”


“Global warming is a religious movement; believers just call their faith ‘consensus.’ But what if I were to say, ‘There’s a consensus around the world among Catholics, Christians, and Protestants that you’re going to go to hell if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ.’ What would the left’s reaction be?”


“I have lost eight pounds in a week, and my staff is pooh-poohing it and making fun of me. A lesser person would have gotten a hot dog and said, ‘to hell with it’, but I’m not doing this for the notice of others.”

“The only question I have about Sheryl Crow is, what is she going to do about the excrement for brains that she has? And these people wonder why Karl Rove has no desire to talk to them?”

“The fact that 35% of this country’s Democrats think that there was a government conspiracy on 9/11that allowed these attacks to happen… it’s no longer funny to call them kooks and freaks and so forth. They are deranged.”

“Snerdley is upset because they’re trying to blame me now for Obama getting Secret Service protection. If I were Obama, I would look to Clinton, Inc. before I looked to me! Try that, Drive-By Media!”

“Fred Thompson is being labeled a racist now because he played such a role 19 years ago. I guess we’ll have to start looking at Anthony Hopkins as a cannibal and Barbra Streisandas a needy whiner with identity issues — well, that may be true for her.”

“The people in my audience — if any of them ever decide to vote for Barack Obama, it’s going to be because they like his ideas. This audience is not sitting around looking at people on the basis of skin color. It’s the left that’s doing that.”

“I’m not going to sit here and take it any longer from a bunch of morons who don’t listen to this show and who have only one purpose: to take out the next Imus. They’re going to have to look somewhere else because it isn’t going to be me.”

My caddy said, ‘The bird’s just waiting to get the turtle’s eggs.’ And I said, ‘Well, this isn’t going to happen when I’m out here.’ So I went over and picked up this turtle and took it back to the creek.”

“If it weren’t for France, we would not have won the Revolutionary War –and ever since then they’ve been on a downward spin. That’s a long time ago, folks! I mean, the French were reliable then!”

New Bibles, three square meals a day, toilets that face the right direction, access to the Rosie O’Donnell show — whatever it is they want!”

“‘Coasts Brace For Busy Hurricane Season.’ Now, let me ask you. I live on the coast. Do I look braced here today?”

I don’t know how it’s possible she blames me for spousal abuse, predatory male behavior, and she says what really worries her is that there are a lot of progressives out there that she knows — i.e., liberals — who, if you listen to them speak, why, you might think you’re listening to me. I think it’s a totally deranged piece.”

“Ought this 1992 video of Algore calling for hostilities against Saddam not disqualify him from the Nobel Peace Prize? Algore, as you know, is my number one competitor. I, too, have been nominated for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. I have done more for liberty and freedom and free markets and entrepreneurship and all this than Algore has in his whole life, and he’s been nominated because of this global warming hoax, plus he’s running around ripping George Bush all to shreds.”
