Quote(s) of the Week

There’s pretty much nothing sadder than a really old person spouting new-age pablum, as evidenced by Shirley MacLaine, who spoke at AARP’s 50th’s anniversary party in Washington, DC. That’s right, AARP’s now old enough to join AARP.

So, Shirley, what do we do about “terrorism”? Just relax and let ’em terrorize, because they might be trying to form another perfect union:

“The whole question of terrorism, and it’s not just me saying this, is that terrorism is evil to us, not to them,” she said. “There was a time when American revolutionaries were called terrorists, and look what we got out of it.”

MacLaine said she did not believe in death, but the “recycling of souls.”

I like to combine the two and recycle as many terrorist souls as possible.

“Recycling of souls” makes it sound like we die and God returns us to the store and puts us in one of those kansmackers, doesn’t it?

All I wish is that new-age moonbats would be half as tolerant and understanding of conservative views as they are of Al Qaeda.


Recycled souls?
