They Said What??? Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Palin, & Mark Wahlberg

RANJIT SINHA

(director of the Central Bureau of Investigation in India talking about whether sports betting should be legal):  “Do we have the enforcement?  It is very easy to say that if you can’t enforce it, it’s like saying if you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it.”

MOSHE ABUTBUL

(mayor of Beit Shemesh, Israel, just west of Jerusalem speaking about gay people in his city):  “We have no such things. … Thank God this city is holy and pure.”

ACTOR MARK WAHLBERG

(ranting at the premiere of his new movie, “Lone Survivor”):  “For actors to sit there and talk about, ‘Oh I went to SEAL training’? I don’t give a f*ck what you did. You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f*cking dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.”

ABBA SINGER AGNETHA FALTSKOG

(about the 40-year anniversary in 2014 of the band winning the Eurovision Song Contest):  “There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. But I can’t say at this point what will come of them.”
OSCAR WINNING ACTRESS JENNIFER LAWRENCE
(on wearing a wetsuit for scenes in “The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire”):  I was surprised at how little camel toe problem there was.  I was expecting a lot more camel toe problems … There really wasn’t any.”
ACTOR JOSH HUTCHERSON
(on wearing a wetsuit for scenes in “The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire”):  “And once we found out you can actually pee through them, like just go into the ocean and take care of your business, it was easier.”
FORMER CHAIRMAN OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE ALAN GREENSPAN
(on how bad it is in Washington D.C.)  “I’ve never seen it like this.  Clearly the problem is within the Republican Party.  If you make every issue uncompromisable, you cannot have laws.”
FORMER REPUBLICAN VICE PRESIDENT WANNABE SARAH PALIN
“Our free stuff today is being paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China.  When that money comes due – and this isn’t racist, but it’ll be like slavery when that note is due.”
SPRINGFIELD (IL) BISHOP THOMAS JOHN PAPROCKI
(planning an “exorcism” next Wednesday when Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signs marriage equality into law):  “It is scandalous that so many Catholic politicians are responsible for enabling the passage of this legislation and even twisting the words of the pope to rationalize their actions despite the clear teaching of the church.”

They Said What??? Bill Clinton, Rick Perry, & Helen Mirren

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON

(about whether his wife, Hillary, will be running for president in 2016):  “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know this: that is the worst expenditure of our time.”

MORE BILL CLINTON

(speaking at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s 2013 Fiscal Summit in Washington):  “She’s taking a role in the foundation, she’s writing books, she’s having a little fun being a private citizen for the first time in 20 years. We need to be worried about the work at hand. All of us do. So whoever the next president is has an easier set of choices.”

TEXAS GOVERNOR & REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL WANNABE RICK PERRY

(defending the Boy Scouts of America and increasing acceptance of gays):  “The fact is, this is a private organization. Their values and principles have worked for a century now, and for pop culture to come in and try to tear that up because it just happens to be the flavor of the month, so to speak, and to tear apart one of the great organizations that have served millions of young men … that is just not appropriate.”

FORMER FLORIDA GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST

“I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here.”

“PRECIOUS” ACTRESS & ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE GABOUREY SIDIBE

“Who hasn’t dated a gay dude?!? He didn’t tell me [he was gay], I just sort of figured it out… [we dated] sort of recently. There were weird things he would say. He also tried on my heels once – that’s a pretty big indication!”

NEIGHBOR CHARLES RAMSEY

(in a live interview after calling 9-1-1 that led to the rescue of three kidnapped victims in Cleveland, Ohio):  “There’s some more girls up in that house.” So they go up in there, 30, 40, deep. And when they came out, it was just astonishing. ‘Cause I thought they would come up with nothing. Like I said my neighbor, you got to have some pretty big testicles to pull this off, bro. Because we see this dude every day. I mean every day.”

MORE RAMSEY

“Bro, I knew something was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway. Dead giveaway.”

ACTRESS HELEN MIRREN

(storming out of a theatrical production where she was playing Queen Elizabeth II and screaming at drummers promoting a LGBT gathering):   “Quiet! I’m trying to do a play in here! People have paid a lot of money for tickets.”

MORE MIRREN

(later):  “I would love to track them down and invite them to see the play. I felt rotten but on the other hand they were destroying our performance so something had to be done.”

SINGER AGNETHA FALTSKOG

(about her former super group, ABBA, getting back together):  “I don’t think so. No. And we’ve had a lot of offers but we have our own life now since many years back and we don’t understand why we should do it. Because we’ve had our time and I think we should let ABBA rest and just listen to the music.”
