„Muslimský svět toho má až příliš společného s Islámským státem.“

„Women cannot complain about men anymore until they start getting better taste in them.“

„Suicide is man's way of telling God, 'You can't fire me - I quit!“

„I have a problem with people who take the Constitution loosely and the Bible literally.“

„The problem is that the people with the most ridiculous ideas are always the people who are most certain of them."

(, July 21, 2007)“

„[F]reedom isn't free. It shouldn't be a bragging point that "Oh, I don't get involved in politics," as if that makes you somehow cleaner. No, that makes you derelict of duty in a republic. Liars and panderers in government would have a much harder time of it if so many people didn't insist on their right to remain ignorant and blindly agreeable.“ When You Ride Alone You Ride With Bin Laden: What the Government Should Be Telling Us to Help Fight the War on Terrorism

„New Rule: Gay marriage won't lead to dog marriage. It is not a slippery slope to rampant inter-species coupling. When women got the right to vote, it didn't lead to hamsters voting. No court has extended the equal protection clause to salmon. And for the record, all marriages are “same sex” marriages. You get married, and every night, it's the same sex.“ New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer

„Can we go back to using Facebook for what it was originally for - looking up exes to see how fat they got?“

„Let's make a law that gay people can have birthdays, but straight people get more cake--you know, to send the right message to kids.“ New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer

„Don't get so tolerant that you tolerate intolerance.“

„I'll show you Obama's birth certificate when you show me Sarah Palin's high school diploma.“

„There's an old, frequently-used definition of insanity, which is "performing the same action over and over, expecting different results."... Now, I'm no doctor, but I am on TV. And in my professional opinion, George Bush is a paranoid schizophrenic....

... Other symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia are: Do you see things that aren't there? Such as a link between 9/11 and Iraq? Do you - do you feel things that you shouldn't be feeling, like a sense of accomplishment? Do you have trouble organizing words into a coherent sentence? Do you hear voices that aren't really there? Like, oh, I don't know, your imaginary friend, Jesus? Telling you to start a war in the Middle East.

Well, guess what? There are a large number of people out there also suffering from the same delusions, because there are Republicans, there are conservatives, and then there are the Bushies. This is the 29 percent of Americans who still think he's doing "a heck of a job, Whitey." And I don't believe that it's coincidence that almost the same number of Americans - 25 percent - told a recent pollster that they believe that this year - this year, 2007 - would bring the Second Coming of Christ!

I have a hunch these are the same people. Because, if you think that you're going to meet Jesus before they cancel "Ugly Betty," then you're used to doing things by faith. And if you have so much blind faith that you think this war is winnable, you're nuts and you shouldn't be allowed near a voting booth.“

„We have a Bill of Rights. What we need is a Bill of Responsibilities.“

„New Rule: Stop asking Miss USA contestants if they believe in evolution. It’s not their field. It’s like asking Stephen Hawking if he believes in hair scrunchies. Here’s what they know about: spray tans, fake boobs and baton twirling. Here’s what they don’t know about: everything else. If I cared about the uninformed opinions of some ditsy beauty queen, I’d join the Tea Party.“

„I think religion is a neurological disorder.“

„We need more people speaking out. This country is not overrun with rebels & free thinkers. It's overrun with sheep & conformists.“
