Quotes of the Morning: GOD to GOP

“The stakes couldn't be any higher, as I said earlier, in the world in which we live. There are extreme elements that use religion to achieve objectives.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, October 11, 2006

“Those monsters! Extremists blatantly using religion as a way to achieve objectives! They must be stopped!”

“TUCKER CARLSON: It goes deeper than that though. The deep truth is that the elites in the Republican Party have pure contempt for the evangelicals who put their party in power. Everybody in...
CHRIS MATTHEWS: How do you know that? How do you know that?
CARLSON: Because I know them. Because I grew up with them. Because I live with them. They live on my street. Because I live in Washington, and I know that everybody in our world has contempt for the evangelicals. And the evangelicals know that, and they're beginning to learn that their own leaders sort of look askance at them and don't share their values.
MATTHEWS: So this gay marriage issue and other issues related to the gay lifestyle are simply tools to get elected?
CARLSON: That's exactly right. It's pandering to the base in the most cynical way, and the base is beginning to figure it out.”
-Christ Matthews Show, CNN, October 8, 2006

“And this isn’t some liberal nambsy-pambsy America-hating traitor we are talking about. This is Tucker Carlson. This is a man who has earned his lack of respect on the left (and in dance clubs). This is a man who managed to get this out of Jon Stewart..”

"You know what's interesting, though? You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show."
-Jon Stewart, to Tucker Carlson, Crossfire, October 15, 2004

“Still, Tucker may have just gone, um, temporarily insane?.. Or drunk?.. Or was abused as a child? Heck, I don’t know. I’m just trying to give the excuses that they always seem to bring out when a scandal hits when someone accidentally tells the truth.”

“’Tempting Faith’s’ author is David Kuo, who served as special assistant to the president from 2001 to 2003. A self-described conservative Christian, Kuo’s previous experience includes work for prominent conservatives including former Education Secretary and federal drug czar Bill Bennett and former Attorney General John Ashcroft....

He says some of the nation’s most prominent evangelical leaders were known in the office of presidential political strategist Karl Rove as ‘the nuts.’
‘National Christian leaders received hugs and smiles in person and then were dismissed behind their backs and described as ‘ridiculous,’ ‘out of control,’ and just plain ‘goofy,' Kuo writes.”
-MSNBC, October 11, 2006

“Hey, what does he know? He is lying. He was just a special assistant to Fearless Leader for three years. In fact, the only reason that he is spreading these kind of lies is because he is a conservative Christian who was offended by the Administration calling evangelicals ‘nuts’. (I figure that the cognitive dissonance in that sentence is no worse than saying that ‘we went to war to spread peace’ or that ‘we need to limit our civil rights to protect our freedom’..”

“I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell - you see, I have friends in both places.”
-Mark Twain
