Conservative talk radio is a waste…of time

“[Conservative talk radio is] a waste of good broadcast time, and a waste of our airwaves.”

- Louise Slaughter , December 17, 2004.

Republican leaders are ‘maniacs’

“Most Republicans who are registered Republicans are decent, honest good people who you have a difference of opinion with. The leadership of the Republican Party are a bunch of sociopathic maniacs who have their lips super-glued to the ass of the conservative right.”

- Alec Baldwin , April 1, 2006.

So much for professionalism

“I don’t need to be lectured on ethics from a much-married, obese, drug addict [Rush Limbaugh].”

- Mary Mapes , April 7, 2006.

We tried to get all conservatives off the air

“We had a massive strategy to use the ‘fairness doctrine’ to challenge and harass the right-wing broadcasters and hoped the challenge would be so costly to them that they would be inhibited and decide it was too expensive to continue.”

- Bill Ruder , September 5, 1993.

Christian conservatives are vengeful.

“[Christian conservatives are like] a vengeful mob — revved up by rectitude — running around with torches and hatchets after heathens and pagans and infidels.”

- Maureen Dowd , November 14, 2004.

We need more Marxists.

“What [American universities] need, and would much benefit from, is more Marxists, radicals, leftists — all terms conventionally applied to those who fight against exploitation, racism, sexism, and capitalism. We can never have too many of these, just as we can never have too few ‘conservatives’.”

- Grover Furr

Colleges won’t hire conservatives.

“In the hiring process you’d probably be wise not to mention your political views. If you say, ‘Oh, hey, I really think Reagan was great,’ or, ‘I’m a Bush guy,’ I can’t say a person wouldn’t be hired, but it’s like your pants falling down. It’s just horrible. It’s like you cut a big fart. I just don’t think you’ll be called back.”

- Gerry Erchak , Spring of 2005.

Conservatives are mean haters.

“[Jack Kemp] is a rare combination — a nice conservative. These days, conservatives are supposed to be mean. They’re supposed to be haters.”

- Bill Schneider , August 9, 1996.

“If what was happening here [in the U.S.] was happening in South Africa, it’d be called racist apartheid. If it was happening in Germany, we’d call it Nazism. And in Italy, we’d call it fascism. Here we call it conservatism.”

- Jesse Jackson , 1994.

Reaching the ‘global village’.

“Extremists [those who insist on clinging to our Founding Fathers’ vision of America] fail to provide a viable pathway from the cold war to the global village.”

- Hillary Clinton , 1966.
