Patterico's Pontifications


Here Is an End of the Year List You Will Want to Bookmark

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:54 am

John Hawkins has the 50 most obnoxious quotes of 2011. Here is number 5:

5) You know what, man? I am going to literally — if (Palin) gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready — because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country. — Christopher Titus

It’s funny because he’s talking about killing her. Get it?

Go read them all.

  1. Titus is a good example of those who tread the fine line between actual comedic talent and a truly malevolent strain of insanity.

  2. I like all the quotes because they expose the people who uttered them as either liars, hate-filled, hypocrites, airheads, wannabe fascists, projecting jackasses or just simply jerks, or any combination thereof. Let them say anything they want — it’s ammunition for us.

    “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” == Jesus, Matt 12:34

    no one you know (577ce5)

  3. Well once upon a time, Flynt had a soul I suppose,
    facts not in evidence, one should keep in mind he was behind that ‘in kind contribution’ to the 2008 campaign,

  4. Looks like Allen Iverson has been stricken with Kerry Syndrome and number 39 was a beaut, in that it started the precipitous decline in the fortunes of a guy who – as it turns out – had no business running for the nomination:

    39) If you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they have been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart. — Rick Perry

    Colonel Haiku (5b04f4)

  5. Alison Rosen escaped criticism in all this when she stated “I think it would be crowded at that point” in reference to the grassy knoll. She has a bunch of conservative fan boys because she was on Red Eye a few times.

  6. Gosh darn, who knew the left was so virulently racist and bigoted.

    One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy. I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he’s a black man who knows his place. I know that’s harsh, but that’s how it sure seems to me. — Karen Finney

    Herman Cain is probably well-liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican Party, conservative movement and tea party movement. People like Karl Rove like to keep the racism very covert and so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity so he can say, ‘Look: This is not a racist anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look: We have a black man.’ And look he’s polling well and he won a straw poll. — Janeane Garofalo

    Herman Cain’s shtick is a version of race minstrelsy where he performs “authentic negritude” as wish fulfillment for White Conservative fantasies. Like the fountain at Lourdes, Cain in his designated role as black Conservative mascot, absolves the White racial reactionaries at CPAC of their sins. This is a refined performance that Black Conservatives have perfected over many decades and centuries of practice. — **Chauncey DeVega

    **The full essay by Chauncey DeVega from which this quote is extracted, confirms what a piece of work he is.

  7. Wow, Christopher Titus. I used to kind of like his show — not so much that I didn’t eventually stop watching it for whatever reason. Looks like he is desperately trying to reappear in the limelight.

    JVW (4d72aa)

  8. Several of the quotes contradict each other.

    For instance: we conservatives are trying to do everything we can do make Obama a one-term president because we can’t stand to be governed by a black man. And yet we supported Herman Cain (because he gives us anti-racist credentials.)

  9. He’s just a wretched human being, in the same light
    as Maher or Tyson.

  10. I think that people have always had nasty, immediate thoughts. Things they would be ashamed to be on record saying, sitting up at 2 AM and reviewing their lives.

    The problem here is twofold: the cult of celebrities (honestly, do we want to hear what Michael Moore thinks rich people should give away…other than himself, of course?). Do we really think that a celebrity opinion is better informed or wiser than anyone else’s? Most celebrities are just parakeets…colorful squawking bits of fluff.

    The other problem is the immediacy of the media. I mean, when folks used to write essays, they would think about it for a bit, and then submit it…in part because typing and retyping took time, typesetting cost money, and so forth. Our modern media and its related technology is very, very quick. So folks don’t get the chance to review their reflexive thought (and the deepseated “need” some people have for nasty, personal snark, as we see even here on this blog) before putting it out there.

    Just my two cents.

    Simon Jester (e9a062)

  11. It’s amazing how far into illogic the Liberal Establishment will go to avoid admitting that the vast majority of those who dislike Obama, dislike him because he is a nitwit.

    C. S. P. Schofield (d726e2)

  12. It’s amazing how threatening the president or VP is acceptable when the left do it.

    Dohbiden (ef98f0)

  13. There was never any genuine concern in 2011 on anybody’s part that Sarah Palin was in any danger of being elected president. People were mostly wondering if she’d be stupid enough to run.

    History will record that she wasn’t.

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  14. 🙄 Screw you. 🙄

    I don’t mean it to be gay by the way.

    Dohbiden (ef98f0)

  15. Well, he’s just an entertainer;
    and Karl Marx was just a librarian.

    AD-RtR/OS! (5d8395)

  16. Mr. Governor Rick deserves to be on the list way way more for his craven weirdo eleventh-hour lifeydoodle panderings than for his heartfelt moral stance with respect to how we should treat kids whose parents are illegal immigrants.

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  17. And I kinda cheered Mr. Ventura at the time. Good on him for sticking to his principles.

  18. Here’s a question for nobody in particular, but I’m looking for info:

    Does anyone have experience with AT&T’s U-Verse service?
    contact me at d e e k a y at o u t d r s dot n e t .

  19. “48) I’m in, like, dating Babylon. Like, I go on dates with men and, literally, like Sarah Palin will come up in like the first 20 minutes, and that doesn’t put me in the mood. Like, talking about Sarah Palin. And they just want to know gossip, and I’m just kind of taking a little hiatus from dating right now, because I just don’t want to talk about Sarah Palin. — Meghan McCain”

    By far, the one I laughed at the most. I don’t know which is funnier: the thought of guys dating her only to ask her about palin; that she’s so mindnumbingly boring, that the guy has to bring up palin just to get a decent conversation out of her; that guys date her. I’m not even high yet, and I’m laughing my tits off.

    Ghost (2b47f9)

  20. Do leftists not understand the definition of the word, “literally”?

    Ghost (2b47f9)

  21. Meghan Mccain: perfect example of a Romney fan.

    Dustin (cb3719)

  22. I loved that list, or most of it, anyway. It’s refreshing to see people say what they honestly think. We knew it about them, of course, but it’s always good to have them admit it.

    The honest Dana (f68855)

  23. As a DFW resident, I’m particularly proud of #13 – that JWP is a hoot.


    Wow, do I so look forward to being called a racist in 2012 when I vote for anyone but Obama. It just never gets old.

    Em (75b883)

  24. The other one that made me laugh was the “Herman Cain knows his place.” yeah, running for the highest office in the land definitely pleases the racists.

    Ghost (2b47f9)

  25. The honest Dana,

    Of course, what’s funny is they have absolutely no clue that they’re admitting to anything… let alone anything reprehensible!

    Dana (4eca6e)

  26. Well I wouldn’t attribute Meghan to the Romney camp, I’m nor that cruel.

    narciso (87e966)

  27. “My personal favorite right now is Mitt Romney,” Meghan McCain said. “I like that he’s not so radical. I like that he has really, really played his cards right, almost perfectly since the last election.”

    Meghan McCain went beyond politics at the Barnard conference, where she also advised peers: “You come home drunk, you’re writing on your boyfriend’s Facebook page, you’re angry or whatever.

  28. Meghan is the kind of specimen who sees the issues as a game to be played. play your cards right. That’s what she likes in a ‘leader’. Take a stand because it’s right, even if it’s bad politics? Not really what she’s all about.

    Dustin (cb3719)

  29. They seek her out, because she’s the more zaftig
    Patty Davis, otherwise there would be little point,

    narciso (87e966)

  30. If only we could be like france right trolls?

    Dohbiden (ef98f0)

  31. she’s the more zaftig
    Patty Davis


    What’s funny is you’re being too kind.

    The country is going to hell in a handbasket and a kid of a politician praises how the kid of a politician ‘plays the game’. Sadly, it’s basically an aristocracy.

    Dustin (cb3719)

  32. Would it be safe to categorize her in the Can’t Understand Normal Thinking class? Maybe even come up with a shorter acronym or something…

    Ghost (6f9de7)

  33. Meghan will be pissed that Romney insulted the Kardashians.

    Dohbiden (ef98f0)

  34. Aristocracy, meet 1789!

    AD-RtR/OS! (5d8395)

  35. The Kardashians are beyond insult.

    AD-RtR/OS! (5d8395)

  36. No, that’s really uncalled for, I think the word you are looking for is ‘hoochie’

    narciso (87e966)

  37. Let me get this straight the Government can use SS to spend on their own luxurious lifestyle? We should privatize SS and put it in the hands of the people like in chile.

    Dohbiden (ef98f0)

  38. That works too.

    Ghost (6f9de7)

  39. Actually it doesn’t, just like I didn’t go into the two minute hate, that some indulged about Chelsea, when she says something worthy of mockery, then she should be criticized, (the irony of the dissapated
    scion of the Sulzberger line, passing judgement,

    narciso (87e966)

  40. “John Hawkins has the 50 most obnoxious quotes of 2011.”

    If you’re going to listen to scuzzbuckets like Mike Malloy (a degenerate animal even by lefty “standards”), Ed Shultz, Noam Chomsky and Mikey Moore, you’re bound to hear a whole lot of obnoxious.

    Dave Surls (46b08c)

  41. I actually don’t mind Chelsea, because at least she doesn’t claim to speak for young democrat females. And by don’t mind, I mean never really paid attention to her. Meghan talks too much about subjects she knows nothing about.

    Ghost (6f9de7)

  42. I have to admit that I was so disgusted by the example your provided, I’m refusing to read the link, because I don’t want to know what could be more obnoxious than threatening to murder Sarah Palin.

    JBS (2d88a8)

  43. Anything that Morgan “I divorced my wife to fuck her grand-daughter” Freeman says that isn’t from a script, should be prefaced by the fact that Morgan Freeman divorced his wife so he could bang his stepchild’s daughter.

    [note: released from moderation. –Stashiu]

    Ghost (6f9de7)

  44. Mr Ghost, if the lovely Miss McCain addressed only those topics about which she had some actual knowledge, she’d never get to say much at all.

    Unless, of course, she was talking about her boobs . . . .

    The snarky Dana (3e4784)

  45. Now, now, Mr Ghost, of course Mr Freeman wants to f(ornicate) young girls, everybody wants to f(ornicate) young girls.

    Roman Polanski (3e4784)

  46. Tell us how you really feel, Ghost.

    /you’re right about this Morgan creep.
