Who said what?
In a time when high-ranking government officials were either becoming targets, or finding their own targets (two or four-legged kind), there was plenty said, and not all of it good.
So I ask you, “Who said what?”
As always, answers below.
1) “We can’t lock members up in a cubbyhole here in Washington and never let them see what’s going on around the country and around the world.”
2) “I think these civil rights leaders are nothing more than racists. And they’re keeping constituency, they’re keeping their neighborhoods and their African-American brothers enslaved, if you will, by continuing to let them think that they’re - or forced to think that they’re victims - that the whole system is against them.”
3) “Barack Obama is the Donovan McNabb of the Senate. He’s overrated, and he’s going to get a free pass by the media.”
4) “I erred when I said that Sherrod Brown is black. I’m confusing him with somebody with a similar name in the Democratic Party somewhere. But we have corrected this, and … I’m not gonna apologize, ‘cause I don’t think it’s an insult to be black. But I did err. He is not black. He’s one of these white European descendents in Ohio.”
5) “Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.”
6) “I would guess it didn’t exactly represent a profile in courage for the vice president to wander over there to the F-word network for a sit down with Brit Hume. I mean, that’s a little like Bonnie interviewing Clyde, ain’t it?”
7) “I had a bit of the feeling that the press corps was upset because, to some extent, it was about them - they didn’t like the idea that we called the Corpus Christi Caller-Times instead of the New York Times.”
8) “We’re just two Jews who don’t know a thing about hunting.”
