Personal Quotes (15)

Swing voters are more appropriately known as the 'idiot voters' because they have no set of philosophical principles. By the age of fourteen, you're either a Conservative or a Liberal if you have an IQ above a toaster.
Liberals can't just come out and say they want to take more of our money, kill babies, and discriminate on the basis of race.
My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.
There are lots of bad Republicans, there are no good Democrats.
[In response to people's criticism of her use of false and misleading information in her books] "Liberals take sheer joy in telling lies, they take insolent pleasure in saying absurd things."
I love it! You know, when I tour college campuses, I always find that the prettiest girls in the room are the ones in the College Republicans.
It would be a much better country (the United States) if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted.
What if they start having one of these bipolar episodes with nuclear weapons? I think our motto should be, post-9/11, 'Raghead talks tough, raghead faces consequences.'
"Finally, a word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have written or said: Please be patient. I am working as fast as I can." June 21, 2006.
"Democrats won't acknowledge the existence of "an imminent threat" any place in the world until a nuclear missile is 12 minutes from New York. And then we'll never have the satisfaction of saying "I told you so" because we'll all be dead. " July 19, 2006.
"If Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts, couldn't they nominate someone who hasn't been a poodle to rich women for the past 33 years?" Attacking Presidential candidate John Kerry, January 29, 2004.
However nice, helpful, prompt and tidy she is, Harriet Miers isn't qualified to play a Supreme Court justice on The West Wing (1999), let alone to be a real one.
If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat [sic] president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women. [October 2, 2007, New York Observer interview with George Gurley]
We just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. That is what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. [October 2007 on the CNBC show, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch (2004), after being asked by the host, Donny Deutsch, whether the US would be a better country if all its citizens were Christians (Coulter said that it would)].
[on the 2012 Presidential debates] I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.
