In this corner, Bill “The Patri-idiot” O’Reilly (responding to the voters of San Francisco approving a measure restricting military recruitment in public schools):
If you want to ban military recruiting [in public schools], fine. But I’m not going to give you another nickel of federal money. If Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we’re not going to do anything about it. We’re going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.Reread that last sentence.
You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.Wow. Guess Bill forgot that Coit Tower is a tribute to the firefighters who fought the fires which followed the 1906 earthquake.
Okay, our other contestant is none other that Pat “I’m Not Insane, I Swear” Robertson (speaking to responding to Dover, Pennsylvania, a town which voted out all members of the school board who wanted to include “intelligent design” in the curriculum):
I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city….And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for His help because he might not be there.My vote is for O’Reilly. Robertson is pretty much a joke. I mean, who takes him seriously? O’Reilly should be a joke, but unfortunately, many take the idiot seriously.
