Quotes of the Week

Once again, I got the urge to share a few quotes from a couple of famous individuals. One of the individuals is an actress, the other a politician.

#1 This quote comes from actress Jennifer Aniston and for  our purposes we shall call it  the profound quote. This was in  response to a Russian journalist who had the audacity or temerity to ask  her a question about  love/marriage/men. Her response: ” Love is love and family is what is around you.” Wow, is that deep.

For our next 2 quotes we hear from Sen Harry Reid, D, NV.

His first quote we call characterize as an intellectual quote. This one was actually about 3 weeks ago and  came at a press conference  announcing that this year’s ambitious climate legislation would shelved. We don’t have the votes he said. ” It’s easy to count to 60. I could do it by the time I was in eighth grade.”  Shucks, Senator , I believe I learned it way before then.

Finally, this one could have a couple of names. Maybe  politically  unwise or maybe I just don’t care what they think.  This was  at a campaign stop in Nevada , speaking to a Hispanic audience. ” I don’t  know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. Do I need to say more? ” Apparently, he did. Just a day or so later comes this from his campaign. ” Sen Reid’s contention was simply that he doesn’t understand how anyone, Hispanic or otherwise  would vote for Republican candidates.” Because after  all  they oppose all the good things that Democrats are trying to do. Perhaps the senator could ask  some folks in November. Or , do you think he just believes in a one party system? Nah!

  1. That’s kind of funny actually.

    Aniston is three holes and decent pair of legs; I don’t know why anyone would encourage her to use her for speaking and the only valid use for Reid is as a human near-analog for target practice.

    • Thanks for the comment. i just wish that ” famous” people would try very hard to keep their mouths closed more often than they. I have a bad habit of remembering comments like hers and other political statements celebrities make. It seems to affect whether I watch them on tv or in a movie.

  2. This is the one that bakes the cake!

    Barack Obama “in this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion.”

    Well if that’s the case Mr. Obama then why does the blacks holler racist all the time? Seem to me like you said everyone was treated equally!

    • How much success would a Christian church have had trying to build near Ground zero? Couldn’t even afford the property!
