    C'mon, he never said that.  Probably showed up on the Onion at some point and someone copied it off.

      I googled it and found it in another blog.  Most of the text in that blog comment related to Peggy Noonan.  The "quote" sites did not have the # 4 Ashcroft quote.

      I think the list is very good and likely mostly accurate.  If the Ashcroft quote is bogus it reduces the intergity of the list.

      If someone posted a listing of stupid Democrat quotes and one was bogus we would rip it, and them, up.

      •  Wasted (0+ / 0-)

        .... 3 hours chasing Ashcroft quote  ( # 4 ).

        Under 10 places in the 'tubes' that have the full quote.  Found out more about Ashcroft than I wanted to know.  He is no longer the Attorney General, it turns out.

        If the quote was legit there would be some media or blog reaction to it, IMO.

        It is impossible to prove a negative, but I think the quote was never made.  By Ashcroft, Gonzales or SNL.

        What I now find more interesting is - Where did the quote come from ?? - who wrote it and attributed to Ashcroft ??
