Top 10 Conservative Pundit Quotes of 2004

If you haven't checked out David Brock's Media Matters website (http://mediamatters.org), you really should. Brock, the former conservative hit-man journalist, has led the fight to uncover hypocrisy and hate speech among top conservative pundits on radio and television. And his website led the fight against Sinclair Broadcasting's efforts to force its 62 television stations to run an anti-Kerry propaganda film.

That said, here is Media Matters Top 10 conservative pundit quotes for 2004. Remember, tens of millions of people turn to these "conservatives" daily as their main source of news:

1) Rush Limbaugh (on the Abu Ghraib photos): "I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of need to blow some steam off?"
2) Ann Coulter: "[Senator John] Kerry will improve the economy in the emergency services and body bag industry."
3) Tony Blankley called philanthropist George Soros "a Jew who figured out a way to survive the Holocaust."
4) Michael Savage: "When you hear 'human rights,' think gays. ... [T]hink only one thing: someone who wants to rape your son."
5) Oliver North: "Every terrorist out there is hoping John Kerry is the next president of the United States."
6) Pat Robertson (on gays and lesbians): "[S]elf-absorbed hedonists ... that want to impose their particular sexuality on the rest of America."
7) Pat Buchanan: "[H]omosexuality is an affliction, like alcoholism."
8) Bill O'Reilly (to Jewish caller to his O'Reilly Radio Factor show): "[I]f you are really offended, you gotta go to Israel."
9) Bill Cunningham (Clear Channel radio host who appeared as a guest on The Sean Hannity Show): The election is over because "Elizabeth Edwards has now sung."
10) Jerry Falwell: "And we're going to invite PETA [to "wild game night"] as our special guest, P-E-T-A -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. We want you to come, we're going to give you a top seat there, so you can sit there and suffer. This is one of my special groups, another one's the ACLU, another is the NOW -- the National Order of Witches. We've got -- I've got a lot of special groups."

Has Wendi Friesen hypnotized half of America into being blind to the true nature of these bigotted hate-mongers, or has America devolved to a new low, where half of us actually agree with bigotted hate-mongers?

I'm not sure which would be more frightening. Thanks for ruining my last shred of hope for the American Dream.
