I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

There is a new book in print.

This book is titled 'Take Them at Their Words', and is a compilation of quotes from the Republican side of the fence: you can read more about it at Amazon.

Some of this is just fucking chilling. In fairness, it's quite out-of-context, though I have difficulty finding any context in which saying 'I think abortion doctors should be killed' is an appropriate thing for any standard of responsible public broadcast- let alone an appropriate thing to be said by any Christian, who has this whole 'thou shalt not kill' thing tailing him around.

But one of the quotes from this book that Salon.com put up has me SCREAMING with laughter as I clutch my head:
"Kurt Cobain died of a drug-induced suicide, I just -- he was a worthless shred of human debris."
-- Rush Limbaugh, Lumberjackonline.com, 4/8/94
  • Ooooooooh my.

    I like this little gem:
    "Every lesbian spear-chucker in this country is hoping I get defeated."
    -- Rep. Bob Dornan, R-Calif., Washington Post, 11/23/96

    I know an awful lot of lesbians and the mental image of quite a number of them in Xena outfits chucking spears at Bob Dornan is highly entertaining.

    This is also priceless:
    "And finally, and most importantly, the next time we go to war, don't give a specific reason for the war that the left can seize upon and later flog us with it ad nauseam, just do it. Remember, the first rule of Fight Club is that you don't talk about Fight Club."

    -- Dennis Miller, "Hannity & Colmes," Fox News, 6/27/03

    • "spear-chucker" is also a derogatory term for african-americans. way to go, Dornan!
  • They're also quoting this book for pages at Salon.com. Unfortunately, even my black sense of humor is failing me, it's making me want to rend and tear and hurt these guys. I'd go on, but you folks already know what I'm upset about, so there's no point in waxing verbose about it.
  • because rush never did drugs!
  • has this whole 'thou shalt not kill' thing tailing him around.

    I instantly imagined this as being a short little imp carrying a big plastic sign following them around. Very nice.

    (oh, and hi!, found you by way of Camwyn's journal)
    • Hee!

      I was envisioning a flock of 10 allegorical balloon animals on strings, myself. I like the image of a pack of little imps or atomies or pixies or imps or somesuch, charged with trailing around Christians and carrying signs to remind them of The Big Ten, though.

      (And hello!)
      • And this managed to elicit another image for me.

        One (or many) of them snapping and believing their good-will imps are really incarnations of the Devil, trying to lead them into sin and doing exactly the opposite of what they say.

        Oh, wait...
