Notable Quotes, Volume 2

Real quotes from celebrities, political figures, and notable personalities.

 

"In view of the number of instances to date in which the committee has found it necessary to comment on conduct in which you have engaged, it is clearly necessary for you to temper your future actions to assure that you are in full compliance at all times with the applicable House rules and standards.''

Official letter of rebuke to Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas), House Majority Leader, from the bipartisan House Ethics Commission

"Mr. DeLay has proven himself to be ethically unfit to lead his party. The burden now falls upon his fellow House Republicans. Republicans must answer: Do they want an ethically unfit person to be their majority leader, or do they want to remove the ethical cloud that hangs over the Capitol?"

Congress Member Nancy Pelosi (D-California), House Minority Leader, in a press conference on Friday arguing that Rep. Tom DeLay should resign following the most recent rebuke against the Republican leader by the bipartisan House Ethics Committee.

"My friends, they will not catch me. Though I may be on the run ... the slackers of America shall not be denied their noodles, they will proudly wear their clean underwear as free Americans. Stay strong, stay slacker, and please remember to turn the underwear inside out every three days. As for the noodles, add boiling water, stir."

Documentarian Michael Moore, responding to Michigan GOP officials' call for prosecutors to charge Moore with election tampering following rallies in which Moore offered gag gifts of noodles and clean underwear to students over the age of 23 who have never voted before if they pledge to vote in November.

"Proposition L claims to 'save our theaters.' In fact, it would hijack $10 million a year from city funds and give it to a group that has never managed a theater and didn't exist until they wrote this proposition. Proposition L is a power grab. It's the wrong solution for saving our neighborhood theaters, and it's wrong for San Francisco.''

Actor Sean Penn in an ad opposing Proposition L, a local initiative on the San Francisco ballot

"I hope that 60 is the new 40 because I'm getting closer to that ... Just because I haven't yet had any plastic surgery, I'm not going to knock it because I think that women have the right to do whatever they want to their bodies to make them feel good about themselves."

Actress Susan Sarandon, 58, in the Boston Herald

"Put an oilman in the White House and you’ll have high gas prices as far as the eye can see."

Richard Blake, 80, a voter in Arizona, on why he intends to vote for John Kerry
