A Contest

Partially inspired by Dahlia Lithwick’s “Turn Me Into A Wingnut” competition, and partially inspired by yesterday’s Frank Gaffney manufactured Lincoln quote, Balloon Juice is proud to present you with our own competition.

The rules:

Take an actual famous or well-known quote from the past, and modify it slightly so that it either attacks liberals, shows gushing support for Bush and his policies, or both. Or make up a quote that sounds plausible, yet is completely fabricated. Some examples from the comments section yesterday:

1.) “Liberals are traitors that compromise the moral integrity of our Republic and deserve to be hanged; especially Hillary Clinton.”—Thomas Paine, Age of Reason, 1795

2.) “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be the fault of the Democrats for not supporting the troops.”—James Madison, 4th President of the United States

3.) “Those would not give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve to be shipped to Gitmo and waterboarded like the traitors they are.” – Benjamin Franklin, An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania, 1759

The winner gets a free subscription to Balloon Juice. Have fun.

*** Update ***

Here is my entry:

A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him. Which is why you send them to Guantanamo, waterboard them, and keep them imprisoned indefinitely. – Winston Churchill

    A single fighter plane could be bought with a just half million bushels of wheat.

    El Cid says:

    ” America represents something universal in the human spirit. I received a letter not long ago from a man who said, ‘You can go to Japan to live, but you cannot become Japanese. You can go to France to live and not become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Turkey, and you won’t become a German or a Turk.’ But then he added, ‘But a man who goes to live in America starts saying that anyone speaking out against a right wing government should be hung, then he, he may truly become an American.’ ”

    It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; it’s violence [orig. nonviolence] or nonexistence; that is where we are today.

    We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’m going to Crawford [orig. I’ve been to the mountaintop].

    Justice [orig. Injustice] anywhere is a threat to conservatives [orig. justice] everywhere.

    For when people get caught up with that which is right WING and they are NOT willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point [orig. short of victory].

    Of course the Democrats don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the Democrats can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the Democrats for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”
