Overview

Am I different? Yeah. Deep down, you know you want to wear wider bottoms; you're just not secure enough. . . . Do I do my hair with a weed whacker? I admit it. --Rep. James Traficant (D-Ohio, 1985-2002)

Supposedly some of our brightest speakers, politicians say some pretty stupid things. Members of America's major political parties put out a roaring stream of downright dumb comments, pronouncements, and observations. For proof, look no further than Ted Rueter's 449 Stupid Things Republicans Have Said.

449 Stupid Things Republicans Have Said includes subjects ranging from cloning and federal spending to foreign affairs and kissing. Asked what he and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair have in common, President George W. Bush remarked, Well, we both use Colgate toothpaste. According to then-Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, If you set aside Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, the safety record of nuclear energy is really very good.; Rueter catches the best of the best, whether the gaffes came from Bob Dole, Trent Lott, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Strom Thurmond.

    Lots of Fun

    This book is a lot of fun. Who knew Republicans could be so funny?! Usually they're making people cry, not laugh! If you like making fun of Republicans like Arnold and 'Dubya', get this book. It turns out our president has said more dumb things than I knew. I wonder why the person who wrote this book stopped at 449, though?
