Quote of the Day

"We had a moment of silence in honor of the people who lost their lives at that sheik temple. I noted that it was a tragedy for many, many reasons. Among them are the fact that people, the sheik people, are among the most peaceable and loving individuals you can imagine, as is their faith."—Republican presidential candidate and undiluted fuckbrain Mitt Romney, at a fundraiser in Des Moines last night.

Don't worry, though: His spokesperson explained that Romney just "mispronounced similar sounding words" and wasn't trying to offend Sikhs.
