    MSNBC host Chris Hayes, feverishly arguing that the Electoral College “would be unconstitutional if it wasn’t specifically in the Constitution.”

    Senator Dianne Feinstein, displaying her knowledge of gun laws: "We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it's legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines."

    Mary Frances Berry, Chairwoman, US Commission on Civil Rights: “Civil rights laws were not passed to protect the rights of white men and do not apply to them.”

    Joe Biden, financial genius: “Now, people, when I say that, look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’ The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you.”

    Representative Diane DeGette, unaware that gun magazines can be reloaded: "If you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won't be any more available."

    Rosie O'Donnell, on family priorities: "Don't fear the terrorists. They're mothers and fathers."

    Democratic NY Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington, on multi-tasking: “Some of these bullets, as you saw, have an incendiary device on the tip of it, which is a heat seeking device. So, you don't shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do you could cook it at the same time."

    The late liberal journalist Helen Thomas, on racial bias: “Jews should get the hell out of Palestine and go home to Germany and Poland.”

    Joe Biden, on smart economics: "The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S."

    Michael Bloomberg, automatic weapons expert, describing an “assault rifle”: "Well, if it can fire a lot of bullets very quickly, that's a good definition... And then you can argue what a lot is, okay, let's say three. If you haven't hit the deer with three shots, you're a pretty lousy shot, that deer deserves to get away."

    Bill Maher, on Christianity: "I think religion is a neurological disorder.”

    Liberal writer Ted Rall, on lack of intellect: "Over time, however, the endless war in Iraq began to play a role in natural selection. Only idiots signed up; only idiots died. Back home, the average I.Q. soared."

    Joy Behar, after getting flowers from Republican congresswoman Sharon Angle: “Those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants. And they’re not voting for you, b*tch.”

    Colorado State Sen. Jessie Ulibarri, on why guns are not necessary: “Congressman Giffords' life was saved and so many others' when very valiant folks stood up to defend themselves and protect themselves, and they did it with ballpoint pens." (A completely false statement.)

    Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is, in fact, still alive: "His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul."

    Congressman John Dingell, on freedom: "The harsh fact of the matter is when you're passing legislation that will cover 300 million American people in different ways, it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."

    Radio personality Ed Schultz, on elections: "If I lived in Massachusetts, I'd try to vote ten times ... Yeah that's right, I'd cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. Because that's exactly what they are."

    John Kerry, on health care: "I'm going to be honest with you -- I don't know a lot about Cuba's healthcare system. Is it a government-run system?"

    Senator Harry Reid, on aging gracefully: “Seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world.”

    Joe Biden, on home defense: "Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door."

    Liberal writer Lynn Beisner: “If we want to keep our reproductive rights, we must be willing to tell our stories, to be willing and able to say, ‘I love my life, but I wish my mother had aborted me.’”

    Democratic Senator Kevin de Leon, gun expert description: “This is a ghost gun. This right here has the ability with a .30-caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second."

    Democratic Rep. Carolyn McCarthy describing something included in her suggested weapons ban: “...it's a shoulder thing that goes up." (Trying to identify a barrel shroud.)

    TV personality Joy Behar, on conspiracy theories: “Is there such a thing as a man-made stroke? In other words, did someone do this to (Democratic Senator Tim Johnson)? …I know what this [Republican] party is capable of.”

    Liberal columnist James Wolcott, on climate concerns: “I root for hurricanes. When, courtesy of the Weather Channel, I see one forming in the ocean off the coast of Africa, I find myself longing for it to become big and strong–Mother Nature’s fist of fury, Gaia’s stern rebuke. Considering the havoc mankind has wreaked upon nature with deforesting, stripmining, and the destruction of animal habitat, it only seems fair that nature get some of its own back and teach us that there are forces greater than our own.”

    Deepak Chopra, on the power of meditation: “Had a powerful meditation just now — caused an earthquake in Southern California. …Was meditating on Shiva mantra & earth began to shake. Sorry about that.”

    Democratic Representative Louise Slaughter, on gun rights: "The Second Amendment only protects the people who want all the guns they can have. The rest of us, we've got no Second Amendment. What are we supposed to do?"

    And, finally, herrrrrrreeeeessss AOC, on weird financial problems: “There are homeless people out there who can’t afford their mortgage and stuff.”

    AOC, explaining how unemployment doesn't work: “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”

    AOC, on not knowing the law: “A 17-year-old can walk into a shop and legally purchase an assault weapon.”

    AOC, on speaking clearly: “She is, she is the leader of, of– no no, she, I mean, um, um, Speaker, or rather Leader Pelosi, hopefully, um, you know, we’ll see, she’s uh, she’s the current leader of the party and I think the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House, we our leadership in the Senate as well.”

    AOC, who does not work for H&R Block: “And let’s not forget that the reason that the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act is because they ruled that each of these monthly payments that everyday Americans make is a tax. And so while it may not seem like we pay that tax on April 15th, we pay it every single month, or we do pay it tax season if we don’t buy, you know, these plans off of the exchange.”

    AOC, on funeral ... um ... taxes? “Americans have the sticker shock of healthcare as it is, and what we’re also not talking about is why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to healthcare? That is part of the cost of our system.”

    AOC, clearly delineating: “Under capitalism, man oppresses man. Under socialism, it’s the other way around.”

    AOC, learning the hard way: “America should stop giving economic aid … of 3 billion dollars a year to Israel.” (#note: the US gives no economic aid at all to Israel)

    AOC, on the end of the world: "We’re, like, the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change."

    AOC recants the world ending in 12 years due to climate change … it was a joke. “Like the ‘world ending in 12 years' thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows.”
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault
