Favorite Quotes + Patton

Alex Rodriguez, hit by a pitch, and accosted by Jason Varitek for yelling at Red Sox pitcher, turns on Varitek:
Alex Rodriguez- "F*** YOU! F*** YOU! F*** YOU!"
Jason Varitek- "F*** YOU! We don't throw at F***ing .275 hitters!"

Allah in the House
Osama and the mujahideen saw a website that claimed Jews are controlling the world with robots. The mujahideen were frightened, and declared jihad on robots: The intifada against Jew robots continues apace this morning, kufr. Three more Zionist vending machines and 11 ATMs have been liquidated by shahids in glorious martyrdom operations.

Charles Krauthammer:
"To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil."

(Greg's note: except for the liberals who don't believe in the existence of evil...)

Jamie Lee Curtis' exasperated speech to Kevin Kline's Otto, in A Fish Called Wanda:
"Aristotle was not Belgian. The central teaching of Buddhism is not 'Every man for himself.' The London Underground is not a political movement. These are mistakes, Otto. I looked them up."

-Howard Kurtz via Virginia Postrel
"Bush told his senior aides Tuesday that he 'didn't want to see any stories' quoting unnamed administration officials in the media anymore, and that if he did, there would be consequences, said a senior administration official who asked that his name not be used."

via Jay Nordlinger Pine Bluff. Black History Month. Come to school as famous African-American. My co-worker's kid was told to come as Tina Turner. My co-worker informed the teacher that her child would come as Condoleezza Rice instead. The teacher refused to allow it, on grounds that Rice 'is for white people.'

Frederick the Great--
"To defend everything is to defend nothing."

The keynote is delivered by Ann Coulter, in an instant classic published today:

In order to express their displeasure with the idea that Muslims are violent, thousands of Muslims around the world engaged in rioting, arson, mob savagery, flag-burning, murder and mayhem, among other peaceful acts of nonviolence. Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.

The little darlings brandish placards with typical Religion of Peace slogans, such as:
"Behead Those Who Insult Islam,"
"Europe, you will pay, extermination is on the way" and
"Butcher those who mock Islam."

They warn Europe of their own impending 9/11 with signs that say:
"Europe: Your 9/11 will come"
— which is ironic, because they almost had me convinced the Jews were behind the 9/11 attack.

Patton Info:
The known copies of Patton's actual speech to the Third Army on June 5, 1944 were destroyed in a fire. Charles M. Province discovered an extra copy which one of Patton's aides had stored away in an attic. Click to read Patton's actual speech, which was delivered without notes. Mr. Province relates that one of Patton's compatriots said the real-life General was much more profane than the Hollywood version. Mr. Province continues:

He could, when necessary, open up with both barrels and let forth such blue-flamed phrases that they seemed almost eloquent in their delivery. When asked by his nephew about his profanity, Patton remarked,

"When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An army without profanity couldn't fight it's way out of a piss-soaked paper bag."

"As for the types of comments I make", he continued with a wry smile, "Sometimes I just, By God, get carried away with my own eloquence."
