Only 40?

RightWingNews presents their list of The 40 Most Obnoxious Quotes of 2004. I'm surprised they were able to whittle down to 40. However, the year's greatest hits are in there. Who could forget:

31) "Many of you are well enough off that...the tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." -- Hillary Clinton
...and that's only #31! The list just gets better:
23) "As I watched Tuesday night's network coverage of the unrelenting political propaganda hour known as the Republican National Convention, the first thought that came to mind was of old newsreels of those self-congratulatory Nazi rallies held in Germany during the reign of Adolf Hitler." -- Hugh Perason, Newday
The list has several of the BUSHITLER references, although they were so prevalent during the campaign as to be vaguely audible everywhere on Earth. Of course, once you get into the top ten, you start seeing the advocates for a Final Solution to the Republican Problem...
4) "Republicans don't believe in the imagination, partly because so few of them have one, but mostly because it gets in the way of their chosen work, which is to destroy the human race and the planet. Human beings, who have imaginations, can see a recipe for disaster in the making; Republicans, whose goal in life is to profit from disaster and who don't give a hoot about human beings, either can't or won't. Which is why I personally think they should be exterminated before they cause any more harm." -- The Village Voice's Michael Feingold, in a theater review of all places
But, I don't want to spoil your reading fun. As the esteemed Instapundit would say, "Heh. Read the whole thing."
