IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Here's a few didies from the April issue of The Progressive:
"Press passes can't be that hard to come by if the White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of the President." --Ann Coulter writing in a February 23 column. (Thomas has been reporting on the Presidency for forty-five years.)
"Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on 'em, and I'll make one pass. We won't have to worry about Syria anymore." --Republican Representative Sam Johnson of Texas, speaking to a crowd at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas. (Gimme that ol' time religion!)
From the March 28th issue of The Nation:
"The death penalty is no big deal to practicing Christians who believe in an afterlife." --Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
