"See, if he was poor, we'd call him crazy. But since he was rich, we just called him "Sir.""
Earl about Chubby Sr., My Name Is Earl

"Ain’t that a bitch. There’s dozens of homeless crackhead hobos in NYC who wear coats made of scabies, socks made of fungus and regularly spit out insane conspiracy sonnets to the masses. Yet, all they get is a few turned down eyelids and maybe a Canadian quarter. Where the hell is their Crazy Hobos of Comedy national tour?!"
Michael K., "Being A Crazy Bitch Is Paying Off For Charlie Sheen"

I covered the Cowboys for NBC's Dallas affiliate for a few years, and covering the Cowboys is an easy job because Jerry Jones never stops talking to the media, and is a completely fucking insane person. He is a man who abhors a vacuum. He tolerates neither quiet failure nor quiet success. If a week passes without the Double J having done or said something completely stupid, he will cry out, 'JEEZUM CROW I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING STUPID TODAY!' and go running for the nearest camera.
Drew McGary, "Jerry Jones Is Fucking Crazy"

"So why should you vote for LaRouche (given that he — as he certainly will — runs for president again)? Among the issues LaRouche is firm on, and that no one else seems to deal with effectively are:"
· Using tactical nukes to build a canal across Africa to solve the world's water crisis.
· Break the Satanist conspiracy between Henry Kissinger (and/or George Soros), the Queen of England, ADL, Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund that controls the world’s drug trade.
· Avoiding the imminent global economic collapse (which has been immediately around the corner since the 60s, apparently). His suggestions on how to deal with it are rather diffuse.
· Banish rock & roll (especially The Beatles), which is a tool used by British Intelligence to control American minds. In fact, according to LaRouche, British liberalism is the main threat to the world at present, and they are secretly working to take over the world and bring it back to the dark ages.
· Dismiss and end the propaganda for the fraudulent idea of global warming (a conspiracy).
· Drawing on the resources of the already existing (worldwide) LaRouche Youth Movement to do, well, whatever youth movements do?

Reese: [He's] very manipulative. Secretive. We've had some personality conflicts.
Andrea: I take it he has a lot of money?
Reese: He's one of those rich loner types. The kind you'd call strange if he didn't have so much cash, so instead he's.... eccentric.
