While doing my usual Internet reading in recent days I’ve stumbled over some funny comments that I thought were worth sharing. We’ll begin with two of my favorite quotes from our silver-tongued President.
“I’m honored to be here with the eternal general of the United States, mi amigo Alberto Gonzales.” – Washington, D.C., May 4, 2007
“And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I’m sorry it’s the case, and I’ll work hard to try to elevate it.” – NPR interview, January 29, 2007
Here are a few from the late night talk show guys:
“Paris Hilton is behind bars, but still no word on Osama.” –David Letterman
“Do you realize if Fred Thompson runs against Hillary Clinton, it’ll be ‘Law & Order’ versus ‘Cold Case’?” –Jay Leno
“Speaking about his Mormon religion, [Romney] said he can’t imagine anything worse than polygamy. He said he can’t imagine anything worse than having more than one wife. Then Bill Clinton gave the rebuttal” –Jay Leno
“The 2008 presidential election is heating up. We have narrowed down the field to 18 candidates. 19, if you count Hillary’s emotional baggage.” –Stephen Colbert
All of the above quotes were taken from the Political Humor website.
One last comment that I thought was funny, and this is a baseball quote. Reds catcher David Ross has been abysmal at the plate this season; hitting below the .200 mark. His offensive duldrums have not affected his defense, and he continues to be a team player. In last night’s impressive win against the LA Angels of Anaheim Ross laid down a perfect suicide squeeze bunt. After the game Ross said:
“That’s the hardest ball I’ve hit all week”.
