A Very Quotable Year

As we say goodbye to 2004, Political Points can't resist getting into the top ten game. We've browsed through our sister publication, Washington Wrap, and came up with our favorite "quotes of the day" from the 2004 campaign.

first 1-5051 next last
10. "Because I could." That was Bill Clinton's startlingly frank explanation to Dan Rather for why he fooled around with Monica. (CBS News, 6/17)

9. "I am a gay American." Talk about being startlingly honest. Actually, New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevy's explanation for why he was stepping down from office was more startling than entirely honest. McGreevy was also worried that he was about to be sued by his lover whom he had put on the payroll.

8. "I am proud to announce to all of you, that in Boston and in Washington, we have All-Clad in our kitchens," (AFP, 4/25) John Kerry was trying to relate to blue-collar workers at the All-Clad plant by saying he and his wife have the pricy kitchenware in multiple mansions. His Philly cheese-steak with Swiss request, the visit to the Green Bay Packers "Lambert" field and the "who among us doesn't love NASCAR" remark, makes picking the best "Kerry plays average Joe" lines a close call.

7. "Don't be economic girlie men." Arnold Schwarzenegger was talking about pessimists in his speech at the Republican convention. His remarks led to another choice quote. "There was no sex for 14 days. Everything comes with side effects," said Arnold talking about the impact of the GOP convention appearance had on his wife, Maria Shriver. (AP, 10/20)

6. "I don't know that she's ever had a real job." Philanthropist Teresa Heinz Kerry was talking about former teacher and librarian Laura Bush. (USA Today, 10/20) Her "Shove it" remark gets the first runner-up place for dominating the headlines on the opening day of the Democratic convention. Honorable mention goes to "Clothing is wonderful but let them go naked for a while." That was her advice on why people should give water and generators rather than clothes to hurricane victims in Florida. (AP, 9/16)

5. "I'm honored to shake the hand of a brave Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein." President Bush gave Bushism collectors some more fodder with that remark (AP, 5/25)

4. "Kerry Picks Gephardt" The New York Post's scoop that wasn't. ((7/6) "Senator Kerry Picked Daddy," said Emma Claire Edwards who had a better source than the Post, giving the news to her mother. (AP, 7/7) "I am thinking about Oreos because I love them" - in the interest of equal time some words of wisdom from John Atticus Edwards to his father and John Kerry. (LA Times, 7/9)

3 "Let's say you tried to have an election and you could have it in three quarters or four fifths on the country. But in some places you couldn't because the violence was too great. Well so be it. Nothing's perfect in life so you have an election that's not quite perfect." Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld talking about the Iraq, (or was it the Ohio?) election. (Reuters, 9/24)

2. "F*** yourself." Vice President Cheney told Democratic Sen. Pat Leahy who had been spending a lot of time talking about Halliburton. The Washington Post's editor Len Downie said they decided to print all four letters of the four letter word because "when the vice president of the United States says it to a senator in the way in which he said it on the Senate floor, readers need to judge for themselves what the word is because we don't play games at The Washington Post and use dashes." (AP, 6/25)

1. "I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it." In one sentence Sen. John Kerry gave the Bush campaign the silver bullet they needed to portray Kerry as a flip-flopper. (Washington Post, 3/17)

Happy New Year and here's to an even more quotable 2005!

Howard Dean: "Not only are we going to New Hampshire, Tom Harkin, we're going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico, and we're going to California and Texas and New York! And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan. And then we're going to Washington, D.C. to take back the White House... Yeeeeeaaaaaah!!!" (19 January 2004)

Hillary Rodham Clinton: "Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." (28 June 2004, in San Francisco at a Democrat Party fundraiser)

"Horrible!"

There was nothing horrible about Cheney's remark. He was just telling that jerk where to get off. The Senate was not in session and Cheney said it to him up close and personal.

"5. "I'm honored to shake the hand of a brave Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein." President Bush gave Bushism collectors some more fodder with that remark (AP, 5/25)"

This has got to be the best of the ten, although not the best of the Bushisms. The best, in my opinion is:

"According to intelligence experts, Saddam Hussein uses up to three doubles. Today, president Bush said, 'Three doubles? That's six, right?'"

One of the ROFLOL moments of the year:

"I own a lumber company? (laughter) That's news to me. (laughter)...need some wood?" (laughter)

(PRESIDENT George W. Bush to (senator) John Kerry at the second debate, when Kerry tried to denigrate the President (what else is new) by saying he owns a lumber company to avoid paying "his fair share" of taxes.)

You missed his one ...

The following is a post from October of this year. This shows the true level of class of Miss T.

Jim Quinn and his producer have been instrumental the last several days in helping the people ravage by a huge flood in Sharpsburg - near Pittsburgh. They have worked on air and over the weekend in helping to raise and coordinate aid to ailing people and businesses - desperately trying to get the town back on its feet.

The following is a transcript from yesterday's show (Tuesday October 5) available at http://archives.warroom.com/archives.php The portion of the show starts around 01:12:40 into the broadcast.

The following is a transcript ...

QUINN: Also, a quick reminder, the folks down in Sharpsberg that Rose has been working with every day - tirelessly, getting herself down there in the choking dust and all that, actually rolling up her sleeves and doing it, are now looking for heaters and furnaces - water heaters and furnaces. If you have anything you would like to donate 412-782-5559, 782-5559, 782-5559.

By the way, the Rose Echo effect, (you've heard of the Limbaugh echo effect), That's when Rush says something and then it suddenly materializes in the political world, well, or the world of media.

Well, Rose yesterday said 'Where's Tereza? Where is she? She only lives up the hill. We're down here in Sharpsberg choking on the dust and the smell of rotting furniture and carpets and all that. Where's Tereza?'.

Well, sure enough within hours, Tereza shows up in Sharpsberg and says this.

TEREZA: I'm not in a position to do anything what-so- (catches herself) other than to find out. I want to find out.

QUINN: So Teresa shows up but she's not in a position to do anything. She's just here to talk about it. She stayed there for I don't know - not very long and stuck her head in one business and left - so I guess she can say she was there. But, she's not in a position - unfortunately to really actually help or do anything.

TEREZA: I'm not in a position to do anything what-so- (catches herself) other than to find out. I want to find out.

QUINN: Earth to Tereza, you have one thousand million dollars in the bank. I know people who are ordinary everyday people who bought fifteen refrigerators out of their own pocket. And ten stoves out of their own pocket. I know people that walked off the street who got out of ordinary Chevrolets and Fords and Pontiacs with checks for twenty-five hundred dollars. And a thousand dollars and five hundred dollars and fifteen hundred dollars but you are in no position to help.

That's remarkable. That is absolutely stunning. Tereza!

Let's hear this brilliant comment one more time from the people who care some much about the little guy

TEREZA: I'm not in a position to do anything what-so- (catches herself) other than to find out. I want to find out.

MULE SOUND: The BS detector.

QUINN: Congratulations Tereza. You just set off the BS detector on the Quinn in the Morning Show.

End of transcript.

How funny, Crawdad, I just posted the "need some wood?"...right before I saw your post.

An honorable mention for me, also from Dubya (on the stump) was when he quoted Flurch Munster, when speaking about Yeeargh Dean, said "Those who doubt that the capture of...Hussein...has made America and the world safer...don't have what it takes to be president", (and then predictably flip-flopped and said the same thing), W said this:

"I couldn't agree more. Not so long ago, so did my opponent."

Honorable mention #2: VPOTUS Cheney at the GOP Convention, talking about Opie AmbalanceChaser's favorite phrase...

"John Kerry says that he sees 'two Americas'. That makes the feeling mutual. America sees two John Kerrys."

Honorable mention #3:

Much as I can't stand McRINO, he did give one of the great one-liners, when talking about the naysayers about the war:

"...and certainly not a disingenuous filmmaker (Michael Moore, who were both in attendance), who would have you believe..." It was so perfect, and so funny, the rest of the quote didn't matter.

Honorable mention #4:

"I have a certain swagger which, in Texas, they call 'walking'." -- President Bush, towards the end of his acceptance speech at the GOP.

Dishonorable mention:

"Uh...can I get me a huntin' license here?" --Lurch. Nuff said.

I could go on forever, but I just thought of another great one--VPOTUS, to the Breck Girl, at their debate:

--"Your local newspaper has taken to calling you 'Senator Gone'..."

--"I preside over the Senate every other Tuesday. The first time I met you, Senator, was here in this hall tonight."

Ouch.

5. "I'm honored to shake the hand of a brave Iraqi citizen who had his hand cut off by Saddam Hussein." President Bush gave Bushism collectors some more fodder with that remark (AP, 5/25)

Any Bushism collector who found substance in that poignant remark is an idiot. Bush was shaking the prosthetic hand of the victim of Hussein's madness.

Kennedy:

'"In the march to war, the president exaggerated the threat. It was not nuanced. It was pure, unadulterated fear-mongering, based on a devious strategy to convince the American people that Saddam's ability to provide nuclear weapons to Al Qaeda justified immediate war," (Sen.) Kennedy stated. '



Gore:

In an hour-long address punctuated by polite laughter and applause, Gore also accused the Bush administration of working closely "with a network of 'rapid response' digital Brown Shirts who work to pressure reporters and their editors for 'undermining support for our troops."'

like the little girly-man he is, he skittered out of the hall and had his aides tell the reporters about 'that vulgar Cheney' immediately.

that story only enchanted the Republican base. Cheney told off this scabrous slime IN PRIVATE after the scabrous slime crossed over to Cheney during a photo shoot and pretended to be buddy-buddy. Leahy had just slandered the VP in every way imaginable.
