“The American left is now building up the notion that we’re not really at great risk: ‘Yeah, a lot of people are threatening us, but they can’t really do anything, so we’re just really overreacting here.’ So their conclusion is we have to wait until they can pull it off to deal with them?”

“Hillary Clinton said, ‘After all, we still haven’t captured Osama bin Laden, have we? And isn’t it about time that we got serious about that? I intend to.’ It is just hilarious to hear a Clinton who was in the White House for eight years complain about not getting bin Laden.”
“The left was in orgasmic nostalgia over the weekend with their big anti-war protest in Washington, DC. Can you imagine bringing out Jane Fonda and thinking that you are going to have credibility?”
“What is it about these Democrat women that they have to scream and rant and get maniacal like this? It’s hilarious! You know, my first thought was that they were talking about the troops when they said, ‘Pull out now!’ Ha! I know I’ve hit a home run when Dawn starts rolling her eyes.”
“If any more of you liberals call here and start whining and moaning about Iraqi deaths, I’m going to get really mad — because you don’t care a whit about Iraqi deaths. You didn’t care when they were dying by the hundreds of thousands when Saddam ran the place, and you don’t care about them now!”
“Do you know how rare it is that a caller is able to inform me about something about which I’m ignorant? Doesn’t happen, Wayne — it just doesn’t. You should go out and buy people dinner tonight and say, ‘I told Rush Limbaugh something he didn’t know.'”
“John Kerry has this hang-up, folks: the American people rejected him. He just can’t deal with it. You didn’t realize what a gift you had in John Kerry. And if you reject John Kerry, the only difference between you and a bag of dog doo-doo is the bag.”
“I guarantee you somebody will ask, ‘Mrs. Clinton, what about what you said in 2003 versus what you said in Iowa over the weekend?’ and this will be her answer: ‘You know, when I decided to run for president, I knew there would be personal attacks — I just didn’t think they would start so soon.'”

“600 Hollywood supporters of Obama mean 600 Hollywood deniers of Hillary — and they all probably have FBI files. So as Leonard Nimoy, the star of Star Trek, might say: ‘May these 600 Hollywood deniers of Hillary continue to live long and continue to prosper.'”
“It’s getting vicious out there in the Democrat Party! Howard Wolfson tells Obama, ‘You rein Geffen in.’ Obama responds by saying, ‘Isn’t it ironic the Clintons had no problem with Geffen when he was raising 18 mil. and putting people in the Lincoln Bedroom?’ Oh, my friends, this is delectable!”
“This is just sick: ‘The drawn-out court battle over what to do with Anna Nicole Smith’s body has a new sense of urgency. The starlet’s remains are decomposing more quickly than expected, and the public viewing could be in danger.’ A public viewing? What is she, a candidate for pope or something?”
“Britney Spears has left rehab again after another one-day stint, and this is news! I have a chock-full show here without mentioning any of this stuff! I only did now because at some point even I, America’s Anchorman, must weigh in on the absolute worthlessness and stupidity of it all.”
“It happened at the 60 Minutes 25th anniversary party in New York; they sat me next to Camille Paglia thinking it was going to lead to fireworks. Steve Kroft and Ed Bradley were circling the table every five minutes, waiting for the fireworks. But Camille Paglia and I are now best buds.”
“You try living without oil! You go out and buy all the Priuses you want and get all the windmills you want on Walter Cronkite’s property on Cape Cod and you try to keep the engine of this democracy fueled!”
“I don’t even call it the ‘Scooter Libby Trial;’ I call it the ‘Viagra-Cialis-Levitra Trial.’ You know all these warnings about if an erection should last longer than four hours, go to the emergency room? This trial is arguably the longest erection in Drive-By Media history, and it’s over something that is purely bogus.”
“So Hillary’s vowed to end ‘US arrogance’ as president. Is it not arrogant to say, ‘I’m going to end US arrogance’? Especially considering she’s a lib; I mean, as a lib, arrogance is in the DNA.”

“Robert Kagan wrote in Sunday’s Washington Post that the surge is working. The Drive-By Media keeps saying, ‘What’s Plan B if the surge doesn’t work,’ and Kagan’s question is: Hey, Drive-Bys and Democrats, what’s your Plan B if it does?”
“Two of my favorite words: ‘Halliburton’ and ‘Dubai.’ Ha, ha! Folks, does it get any better than this? Halliburton is going to move their headquarters to Dubai!”

“The American people are not stupid. The American people have made Fox the most-viewed cable news network. And these liberals are sitting there and they’re, you know, they’re sucking…. their air. Got to keep it clean.”

“The other day Punkin actually pulled the covers off of me and started biting my big toes! I just yanked my foot away and said, ‘I’m not doing it, Punkin. There’s food in the bowl. Just go there.’ Then I hear this ‘meow’ that I just know is an obscenity directed at me.”
“What do you mean, you ‘don’t agree with me’? You can disagree all you like, but if you’re wrong, you’re wrong — and you’re wrong. In fact, you’re wrong about everything you’ve said so far. It’s sad.”
“For a long time it seemed like Mrs. Bill Clinton was playing down her gender, and I think one of the reasons was because we were at war. But all of a sudden she’s playing up her ‘divine attractiveness’ and the outfits that she wears — i.e., pantsuits.”
“There aren’t a whole lot of women who think that Hillary did the honorable thing by continuing to eat all that dirt. Where was your self-respect, Mrs. Clinton? Well, she stayed with the dog in order to get to the doghouse. Her plan always was to hitch her wagon to Slick Willie and then take over.”
“Why did that call stand out to you as me being a ‘butt’? You know why it stood out? It’s because I’m not a butt. And so when I act like a butt, it stands out.”

“You want to get into a contest slamming Republicans? I could win that one hands down. I could also win a contest slamming Democrats, but I am not running for any office because of the pay cut.”
