Henry's Quote of the Week, 6th Installment

Sorry I'm so late getting out my QOTW. I'm not sure anyone could've trumped this anyway. John McCain's pal and Hitler-worshipper G. Gordon Liddy had this to say about Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor:
"Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then."
Oh, G-Go. Let's hope that the next time you open your piehole, I'm not nearby with a rocket-propelled cat-shit grenade.

Henry's Quote of the Week, 5th Installment

Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) on why CO2 emissions aren't causing global warming and therefore shouldn't be regulated:
"Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant in any normal definition of the term. I'm creating it as I talk to you. It's in your Coca-Cola. your Dr. Pepper and your Perrier water. It's necessary for human life. It's odorless, colorless, tasteless, doesn't cause cancer, doesn't cause asthma. There's nobody that's ever been admitted to a hospital because of CO2 poisoning."
Ah, Texans. You never let us down.

Henry's Quote of the Week, 3rd Installment

Octogenarian etiquettarian Letitia Baldrige on how to stop shaking hands (in a socially acceptable way) (because of the swine flu):
"When greeting people on the street or at an event, raise your right hand in a quick salute and put it back down to your side again. Accompany this gesture with a wide, friendly grin and a cheerful spoken greeting: 'Hello, George. Great to see you!' Your voice and your smile will compensate for any rejected handshake. Even if George had already put his hand out, ready to grasp yours in the old familiar warm greeting, he will understand your new gesture and will not suffer from emotional rejection."
Poor George. He spits on his hands entirely too much.
