2010's Quotes Of The Year



I feel pretty good in that I only had not heard of #6 and #10. 

And concerning the first #1, Time magazine ran an article on the guy who created the ad and he's got quite the "go to" reputation. The ad, actually, is pretty good. It's just that the opening line caused the message to be lost in the noise.

Source of this list:

1. (TIE) "I'm not a witch." Christine O'Donnell, television advertisement, Oct. 4
1. (TIE) "I'd like my life back." Tony Hayward, comment to reporters, May 30.
3. "If you touch my junk, I'm gonna have you arrested." airline passenger John Tyner, remark to Transportation Security Administration worker at San Diego airport, Nov. 13, 2010
4. "Don't retreat. Instead — reload!" Sarah Palin, Tweet, March 23.
5. "Chi! Chi! Chi! Le! Le! Le! Los mineros de Chile!" Chant at Chilean mine rescue, Oct. 13.
6. "I hope that's not where we're going, but you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies. They're saying: My goodness, what can we do to turn this country around?" Sharron Angle, radio interview in January.
7. "We have to pass the (health care) bill so you can find out what is in it." Nancy Pelosi, speech to National Association of Counties, March 9.
8. "I'm going to take my talents to South Beach." LeBron James, television broadcast, July 8.
9. "You're telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the First Amendment?" Christine O'Donnell, Delaware senatorial debate, Oct. 19. (The Associated Press reported the quote: "So you're telling me that the separation of church and state, the phrase `separation of church and state,' is in the First Amendment?")
10. "They should never have put me with that woman. ... She was just a sort of bigoted woman who said she used to be Labour." Gordon Brown, comments about a voter he met while campaigning for British general election, Apr. 28.

While everyone supposedly "knows" that it does, the First Amendment does not in fact separate church and state, other than say that Congress shall not establish a religion. O'Donnell was correct (technically, but perhaps not tactically) in questioning her opponent's statement, and all the ridicule was wildly overplayed. Talk about noise drowning out the message!

I love Palin's "reload." That's a great attitude to have!

While just noise, shouldn't the vuvuzela get an honorable mention?
