Quotes for 2014 (no, they're not all related to Ferguson!)

"Gentle giant" - Al Sharpton canonizing Michael Brown.

"The day he was killed, he was out spreading the word of Jesus Christ." - Mike Brown’s cousin Eric Davis continuing the canonization, during Brown's funeral.

"The physical evidence does not change because of public pressure or personal agenda. Physical evidence does not look away as events unfold nor does it blackout or add to memory. It remains constant and is a solid foundation upon which cases are built."
- St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch announcing that a grand jury will not indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

"Burn this bitch down" - Louis Head, MB's stepfather, to demonstrators shortly after McCulloch announced the decision.

Obama talking about solving the problem of discriminatory law enforcement: "That won’t be done by throwing bottles. That won’t be done by smashing car windows. That won’t be done by using this as an excuse to vandalize property." Meanwhile, protesters in Ferguson proceed to throw bottles, smash car windows, and vandalize property. In split screen. With Obama on the other half of the screen. According to the same speech, they weren't looting and pillaging and burning, they were "channeling [their] concerns destructively." This was clearly a prepared speech. I wonder if he prepared another speech for use if the grand jury indicted Darren Wilson?

"We think it was wrong place, wrong time," St. Louis Police spokeswoman Schron Jackson, describing rationalizing excusing the murder of Zemir Begic, who was bludgeoned to death by four hammer-wielding thugs.

"Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" - Bridget Anne Kelly, Chris Christie's deputy chief of staff, in an 2013 e-mail to David Wildstein, a Christie appointee on the board of commissioners of the Port Authority. This little gem emerged in the 2014 Bridgegate investigation, funded by taxpayers, carried out by Christie appointees.

"ISIL is not Islamic" – Obama apologizing for ISIS terrorism.

"We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt" - Hilary Clinton. Yes, Bill, DC hookers are expensive!

"At least five CIA detainees were subjected to 'rectal rehydration' or rectal feeding without documented medical necessity... Majid Khan's 'lunch tray,' consisting of hummus, pasta with sauce, nuts, and raisins was 'pureed' and rectally infused." - the Senate Intelligence Committee's "CIA Torture Report". Gitmo - the gift that keeps on giving. GOP - the recipient of said gift, without lubricant.

"My other laptop is a boy" - Pamela Ribon, dissecting Mattel's "Barbie: I can be a Computer Engineer". This is the same company that made Barbie say "Math is hard"!

“Just when we all thought we’d reached peak beard, a surprising development has happened in the fascinating world of male grooming. Yes, you guessed it (you probably didn’t guess it) – the lumbersexual is here, with his beard, plaid shirt, backpack and artfully scruffy hair barely contained by his sensible woolen hat.” – The Guardian (and Gawker, and The Atlantic, etc.) proving that Monty Python has staying power. Cue the Mounties!
