I'm usually a junkie for end-of-year 10 Best Lists, particularly for movies. But this "Most outrageous comments of 2006" from Media Matters takes the cake.

It's like an advertisement for the Republican Party, via their conservative commentator army, as racist, sexist, homophobic, Christian-paranoid, and a clear & present danger to the survival of our planet who should not be allowed access to nuclear weapons.

I won't excerpt any here both because the riches are too great to choose from and because I generally dislike sullying Nettertainment with any free p.r., no matter how negative, for these individuals. Not one book sold because you read the name here first, I hope.

The kicker on the piece are a list of Fox News captions, led by:
"All-Out Civil War in Iraq: Could It Be a Good Thing?"

If you just can't get enough, Mr Populist has "TOP 20 All-Time Stupid Republican Quotes" up at Daily Kos. Just a few are from this year -- he's even got GOP President Herbert Hoover making a jackass out of himself.

Here I'll allow a personal favorite, from first term W. Attorney General John Ashcroft: "I feel the best way to ensure Americans' freedom is to tighten restrictions on that freedom in any way possible."

Hey, considering this bounty quotes, how's this as a slogan for Today's GOP:
Enemies of Democracy
