Quotes for April 4......

Best Liberal Quote of the Day: On Jesus Christ "Jesus was the first socialist, the first to seek a better life for mankind." — Mikhail Gorbachev

Stupidest and/or Scariest Quote from the Right for the Day: On SexSexSex ". . . yet another revolting example of such [pro-homosexual] propaganda and "tolerance"—some readers might want to skip the paragraph that follows—occurred in Newton South High School in Newton, Massachusetts in 2001. A teacher there told the Boston Globe that he had subtly introduced "bisexual, gay, lesbian, and transgendered" subjects in class. He distributed the novel The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Steven Chbosky and instructed the class to write an essay on it. The book features such subjects as bestiality (between boy and dog), man-boy sex, anal sex between boys, male masturbation, and female masturbation using a hot dog. When a parent objected, school officials treated her as an ignorant pest." — David Limbaugh, Persecution—How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity, Washington, D.C.: Regenry, 2003, p. 78. Limabaugh's source for this story (note 31 in his book) is an article from the right-wing online magazine, Insight on the News, John Haskins, "It's 1984 in Massachusetts—And Big Brother is Gay," 12-17-01. A Proquest search failed to turn up the Boston Globe article mentioned here. There was a piece in the Boston Herald, Jack Sullivan, "Miffed Mom Says teach assigned p*o*r*n book," 7-20-01. The book received a positive review in the respected library journal Kirkus Reviews. While the book does frankly discuss sex, Limbaugh's description is in accurate and greatly exaggerated.

Dumbest Thing Said for the Day: From the world of Sports "Ralph Korner.—Kiner introducing himself on his postgame show, 'Kiner's Korner'" — Ralph Kiner, Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Fame slugger, has been a radio and television broadcast voice of the New York Mets since 1962. With lines like these, may he continue for another four decades. Kiner is Hall of Shame member #9.
