John Hawkin's Most Obnoxious Quotes of 2006

Not his, specifically, but he highlights the worst of the worst. My favorite least favorites:

32) "It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans, and I don't care what people are saying uptown wherever they are, this city will be chocolate at the end of the day. This city will be a majority African-American city -- it's the way God wants it to be." -- New Orleans Mayor, Ray Nagin

25) "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America." -- Rosie O'Donnell

16) "The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country� I don't see why people care about patriotism." -- Natalie Maines

9) "Again, (America is) a stupid country with stupid people who don't pay attention." -- Bill Maher

Now how come these people aren't running for political office? I know that Bill Maher would tell you that it is because we are just too daft to understand he genius, but what about the other three? Oh yea, that's right, Nagin actually got reelected. I guess that makes Bill's comment true, at least for Americans in New Orleans.

Some would argue that the alternative to Ray was worse.
