Worst Quote of the Week – July 4, 2020

“Fauci said that he’s concerned about states like Texas that skipped over certain things.  He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.  We haven’t skipped over anything.”

Dan Patrick, Texas Lte. Governor, responding to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s testimony before a Senate committee about the U.S. response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Patrick went on to say, “The only thing I’m skipping over is listening to him.  He has been wrong every time, on every issue.  I don’t need his advice anymore.  We’ll listen to a lot of science, we’ll listen to a lot of doctors, and [Gov. Greg Abbott (R)], myself and other state leaders will make the decision.  No thank you, Dr. Fauci.”

As we often say in Texas, ‘Bless his heart.’  Translation: ‘Dumb ass!’  It’s simply impossible to protect stupid people from themselves.  To non-Texans, please don’t consider Patrick typical of everyone here in the Lone Star state; the vast majority of us are considerably more intelligent than the moronic clowns who finagle their way into leadership positions.

Worst Quote of the Week – April 24, 2020

“What I said when I was with you that night is there are more important things than living.  And that’s saving this country for my children and my grandchildren and saving this country for all of us.  I don’t want to die, nobody wants to die.  But man, we’ve got to take some risks and get back in the game and get this country back up and running.”

Republican Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, on jump-starting the economy in Texas and other states to stave off a recession.

Patrick is essentially trying to walk back a comment he’d made last month that he’d rather perish from the new coronavirus than see instability in the state’s economic system.

Too late.
