These are the top 10 quotes of 2007, according to some big wig at Yale.


1. “Don’t tase me, Bro!” — University of Florida student Andrew Meyer on September 17, as he tried to stop campus police from throwing him out of a speech by Sen. John Kerry.

2. “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and Iraq and everywhere like such as and I believe that they should our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for us.” — Lauren Upton, the South Carolina contestant in the Miss Teen America contest in August.

3. “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.” — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s October comment at Columbia University in New York.

4. “That’s some nappy-headed hos there.” — Shock jock Don Imus comments about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.

5. “I don’t recall.” — Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ repeated response to questioning at a congressional hearing about the firing of U.S. attorneys.

6. “There’s only three things he (Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani) mentions in a sentence: a noun and a verb and 9/11.” — Sen. Joseph Biden, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate.

7. “I’m not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody (Vice President Dick Cheney) who has a 9 percent approval rating.” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.

8. “(I have) a wide stance when going to the bathroom.” — Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig’s explanation of why his foot touched that of an undercover policeman in a men’s room.

9. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” — Biden describing rival Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

10. “I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history.” – Former President Jimmy Carter in an interview in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper.

I’m hoping someone comes out with a classic quote within the next 10 days. That would totally screw up Professor Ivy League’s list. I wonder if he’s sweating out the rest of December. Almost like you do when your team is up by 1 with little time left, and the other team has possession. Go, clock! Go!

Today's Deep Thought

  • To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And, at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some things I can't remember, all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.
