It's just right over the border." --Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska's proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, interview with CBS's Katie Couric, Sept. 24, 2008

A couple of the quotes ya list *can* make sense.... #5, if you've got a high murder rate but low everything else....number 8 would be, um, 45% mental?... 10 makes sense in the same way that it does when I say "I loved Reno! I lived in (N.Cali town that's about the same distance apart as Phoenix and Cali)!" ... 13 makes sense in that "discriminate" is used in PC talk to mean unjust discrimination, not in the 'to choose between' form....

Quotes from the guy in comments aren't even inside of the same country as the _least_ amusing ones in the list. Just partisan.
