The 40 Most Obnoxious Quotes of 2009

Here’s a sampling:

40) But it is really not easy to make fun of the Obamas, because they’re really — they’re kind of really perfect, aren’t they?”Joy Behar

30) If I’m corrupt, it’s because I take care of my district.John Murtha

23) You can’t call yourself a black man and vote against the healthcare bill.Jesse Jackson
