Quotes: In the Blood

Fiction

"Starfucker just like my Daddy, yes
Sellin' his baby just like my daddy, yes
Gonna strike a deal made him feel
Like a congressman
Runnin' in the family, oh it runs in the family"
Tori Amos, "Professional Widow"

You spilled an ocean of blood. You showed no mercy, no pity. We too are children of this age... weaned on strife and chaos. We are your sons, yet you count on our fidelity. In my eyes, that makes you a fool. A senile old fool!
— Saburo Naotora Ichimonji, Ran

Real Life

H.H.'s memoir is chatty. He tells us how in 1926 his father traced an absconding partner to Havana and with an Army Colt .45 got back his money. "Father's intervention was direct, illegal, and effective." Years later his son's Cuban work proved to be indirect and ineffective; but at least it was every bit as illegal as dad's.
Gore Vidal, "The Art and Arts of E. Howard Hunt"

So far, he is shaping up to be even worse than his father and his grandfather....this has culminated in the public execution of Jang Song Taek, his Number Two and uncle in late 2013, along with most of Jang's family. The official reasons given for his assassination were not applauding loudly enough when Kim entered the room and unforgivably, for moving a statue of Kim into a shaded area of the courtyard. No, really — those were the reasons.

Yes, they gave their dog a stripper name. Would you expect anything less from these two dildos? Anyways, I guess Justin is still too little to take care of a puppy, so "Karma" went to live with Bieber Sr. in Canada. Because Justin is living proof that Jeremy is really good at raising things...Throwing a dog off a balcony? Even Michael Vick is like 'Errr...'. Although part of me thinks that Jeremy didn’t actually throw Karma off the balcony, but that Karma jumped to get away from those awful garbage people.

It might be a little unclear whether Dick Cheney, whatever else one might say about him, counts as a loon. Being vile, for instance (not explicitly saying that Dick is), isn’t enough. But he still manages to enter our encyclopedia through his daughter Liz. Liz founded, with Billy Kristol, the organization Keep America Stupid and Afraid (a.k.a. “Keep America Safe”), whose purpose is organizing vehement attacks on anyone who could conceivably be construed as questioning America’s war efforts...The way she did it resembles a Colbert parody in startling ways (guess Cheney is among the frighteningly large number of people who likes Colbert because they take his parodies as representing his true views).

Just in case you felt sympathy for Kane, Edge reminded fans why kidnapping his father was justified, pointing out that Kane had done evil things in the past. This was transparently absurd... Did Paul Bearer ever rape Lita? Did Paul Bearer ever hook up a car battery to Shane Mcmahon's testicles? Did Paul Bearer ever bury The Undertaker alive? No, it wasn’t Paul Bearer who did all those things, but Kane.

Paul only did one of those three things. (twice)
