''It's your state that fired the shot that was heard around the world! You are the state of Lexington and Concord, you started the battle for liberty right here in your backyard.''


—GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, muddling her American history while speaking in New Hampshire by mistakenly declaring it the birthplace of the American Revolution (the Battles of Lexington and Concord and the shot heard round the world took place in Massachusetts), March 12, 2011


''I get speaker's fees from time to time, but not very much.''

Not very much? If you don't want it, I will sign up anytime!!

—Mitt Romney, who earned $374,000 in speaking fees in one year according to according to his personal financial disclosure (January 2012)


''Juarez is reported to be the most dangerous city in America.''


—Texas Gov. Rick Perry, referring to a city that is not in America but across the Texas border in Mexico, February 28, 2011


''I am the Koch brothers' brother from another mother!''


—Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain


''I have six times as many Twitter followers as all the other candidates combined, but it didn't count because if it counted I'd still be a candidate; since I can't be a candidate that can't count.''


—GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, complaining that the press was ignoring his prodigious Twitter following, which had numbered over 1.3 million people. More than 90% of those followers, however, turned out to be fake — the result of Gingrich's campaign hiring a firm to boost his follower count by creating dummy accounts en masse. (August 1, 2011)


''I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another, then under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence.''


—Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that happened when Gerald Ford, not Jimmy Carter, was president, April 28, 2009

I don't know, publicly incriminating your predecessor after having already agreed to not investigate the exiting Administration might not "breach" the agreement but pretty dumb. Especially if suddenly indictments started rolling out. Wishful thinking...I know.

Well, what kind of fun have you left us here. You ask us to join in and then proceed to list 35 of the best. THIRTY FIVE. I''ll go off now and scour the internet and try to find another. NOT

Opps you just added several more. I'll be back in two or three days when I have found one to add.

35 from Bush? There are like a hundred million from different people buddy....Sorry I don't quite understand your complaint hidden in sarcasm here.

I meant just list your favorite, not from my list but from anywhere...

Simple. Like at a party and someone says lets tell jokes and then tells several dozen before anyone else can.
Not a complaint, just an observation.

Well next time I will start a thread with one and you can pick one from the site I link instead of finding one yourself if that would make you feel better...Sorry you may have to go outside your comfort zone here, but this was meant to be fun...If you have nothing to add, like everyone else above clearly had no issue doing...Perhaps you can just read them, enjoy, then leave while laughing instead of complaining....My 2 cents
