Art of Jason Pruett: Abe Lincoln – Icon

In honor of Donald Trump’s bizarro news conference announcing his candidacy for President, I give you a good old Honest Abe twofer.

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

“He can compress the most words into the smallest ideas better than any man I ever met.”

–President Abraham Lincoln

Quotes From The Dark Side: “Reverend” Pat Robertson

One of my all-time favorites:

Quote From The Other Side: My Favorite Ann Coulter Zingers

110213_ann_coulter
“I’m more of a man than any liberal.”

I’m not a fan of Ann Coulter, but I’m a huge admirer.  She is perhaps the most brilliant entertainer of our time, slinging out foul and seemingly unfiltered, acerbic, utterly heinous and gratuitously venomous right-wing propaganda that mesmerizes her audience and goads them to ever-increasing frenzies of despicable hatred, flaunting the truth with every hyper-enunciated syllable, every flippant flip of her bottle-blonde bangs.  Her exaggerated arrogance and utter disdain for fact and truth drive her detractors to equally intense spasms of spittle-flying fury.  All the while, the conflict between fans and foes feed the fires of her speaking engagements and book sales.  It’s a great gig.  She says whatever the hell pops into her mind, regardless of veracity, and watches the fitful masses fill her piggy bank.  Though not as prominent of late, she’ll re-emerge at some time to incite more riots of adulation/apoplexy she can ride all the way to the bank.  See you in hell, Ann!

You’d think these were April Fools Posts, but if you did you’d be wrong:

“We just want Jews to be perfected, as they say.” –arguing that it would be better if we were all Christian

“I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.”

“God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, ‘Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It’s yours.'”

“If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women. It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it’s the party of women and ‘We’ll pay for health care and tuition and day care — and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?'”

“People like you caused us to lose that war.” — Speaking to a disabled veteran on MSNBC

“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.”–on dealing with conflict in the Middle East.
