A Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times

A friend of mine showed me this little piece of wisdom from the LA Times–Jan Kollitz:
Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘Macbeth’. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”
— Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times

  1. I do not like that the LA times put this is the paper. Some things should be kept themselves. People should really practice filtering their thoughts.

  2. I don’t hear much about any of those women, so they must not be that bad. It is harsh but I doubt it affected those women hardly at all, they have been politicians far to long to be hurt by words from some random writer in the newspaper.

  3. I have not noticed this before but i have the same belief as many of the others commenting on this. Opinions are okay but we should know when and where we should say them because its not always appropriate.

  4. I find that this quote is really funny but obviously it is sexest. Of course everyone has opinions but they need to know when to express them.

  5. Like anything this is a personal opinion and very narrow minded one. I think it’s interesting how the rest of the United States sees California. As a Californian I can tell that we have seen a lot of oppression and we honestly to try to give people an opportunity to do things because of the brain not the color of their skin. At the same time, I can tell you that we still have people in California that think like this. All i can say is that when you’re looking at the majority of people who voted for a person to be elected you have to keep in mind that no everyone votes and that there’s still a majority of people who did vote but not for the politician that one. So, yeah we are open minded in California but, that doesn’t mean we don’t weigh are options before making a choice.

  6. I myself am not really into politics either but I believe that sometimes we should keep our opinions to ourself. I found it harsh for the Los Angeles Times to have put this quote on the newspaper.

  7. It seems odd that they would put it in the LA times, and it just seems more like an opinion. I am not to fimilar with these women who were elected, but it seems like they must be doing something wrong. But in politics individuals have strong opinions and there is always going to be reactions like this.

  8. I am not really into the city politics, but the way this person talks about these woman is mean. I know it’s just an opinion but to state that “ the four of them are jackass” shouldn’t be blasted for everyone to see. I think the Los Angeles Times needs to check what they send out before everyone reads the paper.

  9. I honestly have not noticed this but everyone has their own opinions and this is his opinion and not everyone will agree with him. Politics can get pretty intense at times and I am not very good with it so I just try to avoid it. I think it is kind of weird that the Los Angeles Times would post this as the quote of the day.

  10. people lean towards the side that will benefit themselves not what will be the best option at our current circumstance. I sometimes wonder how some of those individuals get sent to Washington to represent us, then again its usually those who are less likely to upset higher percent of those who they represent or the puppet who is willing to agree with everything, yes man or woman.

  11. Yeah I personally try to avoid talking about politics with people just because of how some people react if they dont agree with you.

  12. politics is something that is hard to discuss no one ever just agrees fully with what others have to say. Everyone sounds like an ass here and there. No on will just be the best person to speak on politics because when they say something a person does not like they are known as idiots from then on.

  13. Californians seem have the natural mentality to be a left winger. To go along with what seems to be progressive, but forgetting to go with what’s practical and wise. In the advent of these jobless days, I hope they wise on up.

  14. Everyone has their own beliefs on things. Politics is probably one of the hardest things to talk about because everyone is left,right,up,down,slide ways.

  15. Well that is one way to look at it… Everyone has their own beliefs on that sort of thing. I never talk about politics because of how crazy people get with their opinions. There is never going to be someone in office who every single person adores. It’s never going to happen. I’m honestly surprised something like that showed up in the LA Times.

  16. I am neither left nor right winged. I’m not conservative or liberal. I’m not republic or democrat. I’m an individualist, when I support something such as Capitalism, I support it because regardless of the major companies argument, it still allows for individual people to become wealthy. Now that being said, I do really agree with the statement that California has some really bat-shit-crazy left-winged obnoxious people. Granted there are crazy right-winged people just as equally bat-shit-crazy, but because I live in California, I’m stuck dealing with left-wings. I know it’s not if you’re left or right, then you’re stuck at one far end, most people are not at the end of each spectrum. The people that are elected to official positions are though and that is never a great thing.
