Bob Barker                   Always digging for the truth

Donald Trump
billionaire real estate mogul

Donald Trump

"I have something very, very big concerning the president of the United States. ... And it's going to be very big. I know one thing: you will cover it in a very big fashion. ... It's very big — bigger than anyone would know. ... It's a big fact." (Fox News' Fox and Friends; 10/22/2012.)

"You know, it really doesn't matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass." (as cited in Friedman, Barry; "Would God Be so Good?" Esquire; 7/29/2013.)

"I'm not a schmuck. Even if the world goes to hell in a handbasket, I won't lose a penny." (as cited in Touche, Donahue; "Trump: 'The People's Billionaire'"; Chicago Tribune; 3/12/1989.)

I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks." (as cited in Foster, Kathleen; FoxNews.com; 4/14/2011.)

"Part of the beauty of me is that I'm very rich." (ABC News with Ashleigh Banfield; 3/17/2011.)

"I'm a much bigger business man and have much, much bigger net worth. I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney." (CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley; 4/17/2011.)

... and on, and on ...


Ann Coulter
conservative writer and commentator

Ann Coulter

She called President Obama a "retard." ("Ann Coulter Calls Obama a 'Retard'"; The Huffington Post; 10/23/2012.)

She called John Edwards a "faggot." ("Coulter Under Fire for Anti-Gay Slur"; CNN.com; 3/4/2007.)

"Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do." (Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right; 2003.)

"Ms. Coulter, who seems afflicted by a kind of rhetorical compulsion, most recently labeled the widows of 9/11 'harpies' … [saying of them,] 'I have never seen people enjoying their husband's death so much.' … It is just one in a series from a spoken-word hit parade that seems to fly out of her mouth uninterrupted by conscience, rectitude, or logic. … She has since suggested wistfully that Timothy McVeigh should have parked his truck in front of The New York Times, joked that a Supreme Court justice should be poisoned, and said that America should invade Muslim countries and kill their leaders. … Does she believe any of this stuff? I doubt she even knows. When I profiled Ms. Coulter a few years ago, I never figured out the line between her art and her artifice. (Carr, David; "Deadly Intent: Ann Coulter, Word Warrior"; The New York Times; 6/12/2006.)

"I don't really like to think of [the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller] as murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester." (Fox News' The Factor with Bill O'Reilly; 6/24/2009.)

... and on, and on ...


Rush Limbaugh
conservative writer, commentator, and talk show host

Rush Limbaugh

He compared President Obama to an "Oreo cookie." ("Rush Limbaugh Compares Obama to New Oreo: 'It's Gonna Be Called the Or-Ba-Meo'"; The Huffington Post; 8/17/2011.)

"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?" (as cited in Gehr, Richard; "Mouth at Work"; Newsday; 10/8/1990.)

"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back," said Rush Limbaugh, speaking to an African-American caller. (Gehr, Richard; "Mouth at Work"; Newsday; 10/8/1990.)

"It makes her [Sandra Fluke] a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex." (The Rush Limbaugh Show; in response to Sandra Fluke's pre-empted congressional testimony in support of contraception insurance coverage; 2/29/12.)

"Women should not be allowed on juries where the accused is a stud." (updated "35 Undeniable Truths";1994; as cited in Suddath, Claire, "Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh"; Time; 3/4/2009.)

"If you feed them, if you feed the children, three square meals a day during the school year, how can you expect them to feed themselves in the summer? … Yeah, well, who made [free meals during the school year] possible? You, Mr. New Castrati, by trying to make people helpless, wanton little waifs and serfs dependent on the state. Pure and simple." (The Rush Limbaugh Show; 12/12/2011.)

"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society." (The Rush Limbaugh Show; 8/12/2005.)

"Socks is the White House cat. But did you know there is also a White House dog?" said Rush Limbaugh, displaying a photograph of 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton, on his short-lived TV show in 1993. (Bingham, Amy; "Chelsea Clinton, Sandra Fluke Unite Over Rush Limbaugh Attacks"; ABCNews.com; 4/2/2012.)

... and on, and on ...


John Sununu
(R-N.H.) 2012 Romney-Ryan presidential campaign co-chair, former [George H. W. Bush] White House chief of staff, former governor

John Sununu

He called President Obama "lazy and disengaged." (MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports; 10/4/2012.)

He called the president "dumb" and "stupid" and said he wished Obama "would learn how to be an American." (Johnson, Luke; "John Sununu: 'I Wish This President Would Learn How to Be an American'"; The Huffington Post; 7/17/2012.)

"When you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama. ... I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him." (CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight; 10/25/2012.)

"[Obama] has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn't be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S. he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure." (Fox News; 7/17/2012.)

"When you're not that bright you can't get better prepared," said John Sununu, speaking of President Obama's first debate performance. (Fox News; 10/4/2012.)

"[Obama has] no class, [he just] wants to be cool." (Fox News' The Sean Hannity Show; 10/25/2012.)

"This guy [Obama] has tried to create some racial divides." (Fox News' The Sean Hannity Show; 10/25/2012.)

... and on, and on ...


 

Sarah Palin
(R-Alaska) former governor, 2008 [John McCain] vice presidential candidate

Sarah Palin

"All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years," said Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads. (interview conducted by Couric, Katie; CBS News; 10/1/2008.)

"Well, let's see. There's ― of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there's never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others, but ...," said Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe v. Wade. (interview conducted by Couric, Katie; CBS News; 10/1/2008.)

"But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." (The Glenn Beck Show; 11/24/2010.)

"I'll try to find you some, and I'll bring them to you," said Palin when asked to cite specific examples of how John McCain has pushed for more regulation in his 26 years in the Senate. (interview conducted by Couric, Katie; CBS News; 9/24/2008.)

"In what respect, Charlie?" said Palin when asked if she agreed with the Bush Doctrine. (interview conducted by Gibson, Charlie; ABC News; 9/11/2008.)

... and on, and on ...


Michele Bachmann
(R-Minn.) former U.S. House representative, 2012 presidential primary candidate

Michele Bachmann

"Michele Bachmann has called gay marriage 'probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, 30 years.' In 2005 she ran screaming from a bathroom at a constituent forum, claiming that a lesbian had attempted to keep her there against her will. (The woman said she was merely questioning Bachmann about her position on gay marriage.) As a state senator, she was seen crouching behind hedges to observe a gay rights rally. (She has explained that she was checking the turnout.) (Horowitz, Jason; "Michele Bachmann's Husband Shares Her Strong Conservative Values"; The Washington Post; 7/5/2011.)

"The government spent its wad by April 26 [2009]." (Delaney, Arthur; "Michele Bachmann: Obama Led Spending 'Orgy,' Government 'Spent Its Wad'"; The Huffington Post; 6/4/2009.)

"'During the last 100 days [starting with Obama's 2009 inauguration] we have seen an orgy. It would make any local smorgasbord embarrassed' [said Bachmann]. … Less than three weeks later, she went looking for her piece of the pie." (Stein, Sam; "Michele Bachmann Repeatedly Sought Stimulus, EPA, Other Government Funds"; The Huffington Post; 10/10/2011.)

"Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." (floor speech, U.S. House of Representatives; 4/22/2009; as cited in "Michele Bachmann's Top 5 Quotes" The Telegraph; 7/19/2011.)

"We also know that the very founders that wrote those documents [the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence] worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States." (Iowans for Tax Relief speech; 1/21/2011; as cited in Colmes, Alan; "Michele Bachmann Erroneously Gives Our Founders Credit for Ending Slavery"; FoxNews.com; 1/25/2011.)

"She has a history of making statements that are inflammatory, controversial, [and] questionably informed. ... Until now, the most famous of those was her assertion that there was a plan already in place to partition Iraq and give half of it to Iran. She later said her comments had been 'misconstrued' but did not elaborate. … Bachmann [also] said 'not all cultures are equal, not all values are equal,' letting it be known that she thought that people of the Muslim faith had an inferior culture to that of the United States and the West." ("Michele Bachmann: 'Not All Cultures Are Equal'"; The Huffington Post; 11/24/2008.)

"[Nancy Pelosi, the US speaker of the House,] is committed to her global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she's just trying to save the planet. … We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet — we didn't need Nancy Pelosi to do that." (as cited in Frick, Ali; "Global Warming Denier Michele Bachmann Named to House GOP 'Energy Solutions' Group"; Think Progress; 4/28/2009.)

... and on, and on ...


Glenn Beck
conservative writer, commentator, and talk show host

Glenn Beck

"This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture. ... I'm not saying he doesn't like white people, I'm saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist." (Fox News' Fox & Friends; 7/28/2009.)

"You know it took me about a year to start hating the 9/11 victims' families? … When I see a 9/11 victim family on television, or whatever, I'm just like, 'Oh, shut up!' I'm so sick of them because they're always complaining." (The Glenn Beck Program; 9/9/2005.)

"I thought: I didn't think I could hate victims faster than the 9/11 victims. … All we're hearing about, are the [Hurricane Katrina victims] in New Orleans. Those are the only ones we're seeing on television are the scumbags." (The Glenn Beck Program; 9/9/2005.)

"The goal is the United Nations running the world. … Back in the 1930s, the goal was get rid of all of the Jews and have one global government … You got to have an enemy to fight. … Then you can unite the entire world behind you, and you seize power. That was Hitler's plan. His enemy: the Jew. Al Gore's enemy, the U.N.'s enemy: global warming … Then you get the scientists — eugenics. You get the scientists — global warming. Then you have to discredit the [opposing] scientists who say, 'That's not right.' And you must silence all dissenting voices. That's what Hitler did." (The Glenn Beck Program; 5/1/2007.)

"So here you have Barack Obama going in and spending the money on embryonic stem cell research. ... Progressive movement in America. Eugenics. In case you don't know what Eugenics led us to: the Final Solution. A master race! A perfect person. ... The stuff that we are facing is absolutely frightening." (The Glenn Beck Program; 3/9/2009.)

"I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today," said Glenn Beck, explaining why people who lost their homes in California forest fires had it coming. (The Glenn Beck Program; 10/22/2007.)

Runners-up

Grover Norquist
Not there quite yet, but on the right track.

Jan Brewer
She's coming along.

Allen West
Would have been a full-fledged member in "The File," but now irrelevant after his election loss.

Orly Taitz
Definitely qualified for "The File," but not quite well-known enough.
