The Dumbest Quotes of The Decade
Were there dumber quotes than these? Probably. Also, most of the people on this list were repeat offenders. I just tried to list some of their more idiotic blunders. No one was spared, Democrat or Republican – Man or Woman. Here we go…
Rush Limbaugh: “Exercise freaks … are the ones putting stress on the health care system.”
George W. Bush (3):
- “Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren’t able to practice their love with women all across this country.”
- “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”
- “They misunderestimated me”
Arnold Schwarzenegger: “I think gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman.”
Michele Bachmann-(R) Minnesota State Congresswoman: “This is an earthquake issue. This will change our state forever. Because the immediate consequence, if gay marriage goes through, is that K-12 little children will be forced to learn that homosexuality is normal, natural and perhaps they should try it.”
Dana Perino (Former White House Press Secretary): “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.” (In fact, we did. September 11th, 2001 to be precise.)
Glenn Beck: “Al Gore’s not going to be rounding up Jews and exterminating them. It is the same tactic, however. The goal is different. The goal is globalization…And you must silence all dissenting voices. That’s what Hitler did. That’s what Al Gore, the U.N., and everybody on the global warming bandwagon [are doing].”
Joe Biden: “Uh, uh, Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up, Chuck, let ‘em see you. Oh, God love you. What am I talking about.” – To wheelchair-bound Missouri state senator, Charles Graham.
Sarah Palin (2):
- “It may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: ‘Sit down and shut up,’ but that’s the worthless, easy path; that’s a quitter’s way out.” – announcing her resignation as governor.
- “All of ’em, any of ’em that have been in front of me over all these years.” – unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric (Silly Katie Couric, we all know Sarah Palin can’t read!)
Miss Teen South Carolina 2007: “I personally believe, that US Americans are unable to do so, because some people out there, in our nation, don’t have that, and eh I believe that our education, like such as in South Africa, and the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, our education over here, in the US, should help the US, or should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future… for our children.”
Britney Spears (2):
- “I get to go to lots of overseas places, like Canada.” (On traveling)
- “I’ve never really wanted to go to Japan. Simply because I don’t like eating fish. And I know that’s very popular out there in Africa.”
Jessica Simpson: “Is this chicken what I have or is this fish? I know it’s tuna, but it says chicken.”
Paris Hilton: “I’m so smart now. Everyone is always like, ‘Take your top off.’ Sorry, no! They always want to get that money shot. I’m not stupid.”
R. Kelly: “All of a sudden, you’re like the Bin Laden of America. Osama Bin Laden is the only one who knows exactly what I’m going through.”
Christina Aguilera: “Where’s the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?”
Kanye West: “I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade. I will be the loudest voice.”
Of course, Kanye had a lot more. But I am not going to shame this blog with any unnecessary Kanye-publicity.
