Time now for the 2009 preposterous statement tournament (not to be confused with the Common Man Dan Cole’s Preposterous Statement Tournament). You can follow the tournament by using the 20 Times Around the Block Preposterous Statement bracket. Make your pick for a winner! A complete list of the statements can be found here.
Which statement is more preposterous?
2.I have always hesitated when my colleagues rush to pronounce final judgment on events thousands of miles away [like Iran’s election] about which we know very little. –Ron Paul
15. I suggest, in the finest American tradition, we protest this absurd and deplorable act [arresting Roman Polanski] by smashing our cuckoo clocks, pawning our Swiss watches, and banning Swiss cheese and chocolate.–Joan Z. Shore
American isolationism v. insanity. Go for it!
