2004 awards for over-the-top rhetoric

Columnist John Leo has written a column in which he quotes some of the most absurdly ridiculous comments by well-known Americans, all of whom should know better:

Sen. John Edwards: “I’d say if you live in the United States of America and you vote for George Bush, you’ve lost your mind.”

Natalie Maines, of the Dixie Chicks, said: “I realize that I’m just supposed to sing and look cute so our fans won’t have anything to upset them while they’re cheating on their wives or driving around in their pickup trucks shooting small animals.”
