The Late, Unlemented, 2007

John Hawkins of Right Wing News has assembled the "40 Most Obnoxious Quotes Of 2007"; a preview:
Number 36:
"(News of killings is) not good for us, but it also keeps the New Orleans brand out there, and it keeps people thinking about our needs and what we need to bring this community back." -- Democratic Mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, explains the upside of murders in his city.
Number 29:
"Well, because the Arabs who were involved in 9/11 cooperated with the Zionists, actually. It was a cooperation. They gave them the perfect excuse to denounce all Arabs. It's a racist sort of thing, really racist – you know, picking out these 19 or 20 terrorists – they were terrorists – and saying all the Arabs are like them." -- Former Democratic Senator James Abourezk on Hizbullah TV
Number 26:
"Let's just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers, though one denies the past and the other denies the present and future." -- Columnist Ellen Goodman
Number 15:
"America needs to follow the policies it has introduced in Germany. We have to go through a certain de-Nazification process." -- George Soros
Number 1:
"Over time, however, the endless war in Iraq began to play a role in natural selection. Only idiots signed up; only idiots died. Back home, the average I.Q. soared." -- Ted Rall
