2007: A Year in Quotes

When cleaning out files, I found this, which should have been posted almost two months ago. Anyway, enjoy!!!

The Best Quotes of 2007

"That's because I read it."

- Rep. Dennis Kucinich, explaining why he was the only candidate at the Las Vegas Democratic debate who had voted against the Patriot Act

"There were only two of them, but they made a whole frontage: huge, compelling, pneumatic. They burst out of tight red dresses--preferably red--or teased among feather boas, or flanked a dizzying cleavage that plunged to tantalising depths. These were celebrated, American breasts, engineered by silicon to be as broad and bountiful as the prairie. With them, a girl from nowhere--or from Houston, Texas--could do anything. The body behind them waxed and waned, sometimes stout as a stevedore's and sometimes almost waif-like, matching the little-girl voice; but the Breasts remained."

- The Anna Nicole Smith obituary in The Economist

"As always, I rely on the jury system."

- O.J. Simpson, after a judge refused to dismiss his latest criminal charges

"In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country."

-Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

"There's only three things he mentions in a sentence: a noun and a verb and 9/11."

- Delaware Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Joseph Biden

"I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody who has a nine percent approval rating."

-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Vice President Dick Cheney

"(I have) a wide stance when going to the bathroom."

-Senator Larry Craig

Do you have a favorite "Best of" quote for 2007? If so, please share.

2008 looks to be quite a year as well. But I'm not sure we'll ever beat "I have a wide stance in the bathroom".

Well Penelope, I don't know about best, but, "That's because I read it." - Rep. Dennis Kucinich, may well be the scariest quote of 2007.
I've been trying to get the "wide stance" out of my mind for months now. Sigh. It may never leave.

Great list!

Um, Anna Nicole Smith died? God I need to watch more tv, I didn't even know that.

Or maybe I did for two seconds once but forgot it instantly.

Funny stuff.

"I threw up in my mouth a little bit".

No clue who started it, but can that be #1 on the "worst of" quotes for 2007?

As for the best quotes, the OJ Simpson one is priceless. Well, maybe not priceless, as he has to pay a mint to say that, but still... I find that to be the scariest of them all.

Just stopping by to check out your blog from SUV Mama's site...so far I love it. You are an excellent advertisement for Travis' "POV" post!

I can't think of a quote right now. I'll stop back later!
