While doing a bit of research following the rather acerbic remarks from one Joe Biden, our esteemed Vice Prez assigned to fostering greater relations with minorities, I found some interesting dialogue attributed to Republican leaders from past years. Although these may not be as controversial as Delaware Joe's latest gaff, they are a bit humorous, especially considering the high offices they held or tried to hold:
from Dan Quayle:
"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure."
"Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child."
"What a waste it is to lose one's mind. Or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is."
"One word sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president, and that one word is 'to be prepared."
"Welcome to President Bush, Mrs. Bush, and my fellow astronauts."
"I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy -- but that could change."
"I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix."
from Sarah Palin:
"Polls are for strippers and cross-country skiers"
"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed."
"I love that smell of the emissions!"
"But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies."
A heartbeat away from the Presidency? Whew!!!
