We Report, You Decide

Neville Chamberlain: Germany isn't that suspicious. Let's talk about it.
Winston Churchill: Let's take 'em out before they take us out.

The U.N./"Global Community": We've just been attacked. Let's hold a committee in a few weeks and talk about it. Maybe hold hands and sing Kum Ba Ya.
George W. Bush: You can run but you can't hide.  Let's fire up those jets, shall we?

Tim Robbins: Our response to 9/11 should be to plant trees. (No joke, he said that.)
Bruce Willis: Mr. President, where do you want me?

Bruce Springsteen: If I weren't so coked out, I might have an informed opinion. Wait, we were attacked?
Toby Keith: We'll put a boot up your @$$, it's the American way.

Michael Moore:
It's our foreign policies that made them do it.
Ann Coulter: It's your ugly face that made them do it.

Dick Durbin: Our troops are Nazis.
Zell Miller: I'll show you Nazi.

Democrat: John Edwards has agreed to channel their inner children to help us understand their motivations.
Republicans: Mr. President, the jets are fired up.

History: GW was right
Revisionist history: GWho?

Hey Portia,

You forgot to add something under the U.N.: Let's accept bribes from Genocidal Dictators and the leaders of the terrorist organizations while we look the other way and publicly criticize their actions.

Outstanding contrasts. Leftists will criticize you for not being "nuanced." because nothing is black and white (unless you are getting your @$$ bombed). Three cheers.

I don't like the way you are making up phony quotations and putting them in people's mouths to make those you like sound good and those you don't like sound bad. You should use real facts and real information, not phony strawmen.

was "strawmen" in some kind of memo or something? I keep hearing that tossed around all over the place. I'm just wondering.

as far as strawman, I look at this list, and it isn't a bunch of made-up hooey...it's what people did and said. well, maybe not Springstien.

upon first reading, it looked pretty satirical to me. but as I read it, that's really more of what the character of the people involved would say or do. would you deny that the MM and AC quotes sound like what they would say?

You see, dear Ziggy. There is this thing called satire. And everything, spare the Springsteen thing (I just can't stand him), is either a direct quote or the general worldview of those I'm "quoting."
You libs need a better sense of humor. :) We conservatives have learned to put up with much worse.

Well if that's true then you may as well do the work to find real quotations.
