Yeah, we shot ourselves in the foot right out of the gate.
by Al Franken

Yeah, we shot ourselves in the foot right out of the gate.
The guy who ran it at first misled pretty much everybody
about how much capital we had.
He said we had enough to go three years without making money,
and we had enough to go three weeks.
- Al Franken

It is easier to put on slippers
than to carpet the entire world
- Al Franken

Christian voters should start looking
at global warming and extreme poverty
as religious issues that speak to the culture of life.
- Al Franken

The thing that interests me least about the radio business is the radio business.
But I've had to learn a little bit about it.
It's not rocket science: You get ratings,
that's good.
- Al Franken

 

When the president during the campaign said he was against nation building,
I didn't realize he meant our nation.

I do personal attacks only on people who specialize in personal attacks.
- Al Franken

It's the Power of the Almighty, the Splendor of Nature,
and then you.
- Al Franken

The biases the media has are much bigger than conservative or liberal.
They're about getting ratings, about making money,
about doing stories that are easy to cover.
- Al Franken

When you encounter seemingly good advice that contradicts
other seemingly good advice,
ignore them both.
- Al Franken

To make the argument that the media has a left-
or right-wing,
or a liberal or a conservative bias,
is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they
use too much oil in their hummus.
- Al Franken

The next thing I am doing is moving back home to Minnesota
and getting involved in politics.
I'm looking at a run for Senate in 2008,
but in the meantime I am focused on knitting together
the progressive network in the upper Midwest.
- Al Franken

Yeah, but you need an experienced radio veteran who is a liberal advocate.
And there just hadn't been any radio that did that.
And so they weren't trained - they had developed all
these bad habits of being objective and balanced and stuff like that.
- Al Franken

And I think that being able to make people laugh and
write a book that's funny makes the information go
down a lot easier and it makes it a lot more fun to read,
easier to understand, and often stronger.
So there's all kinds of advantages to it.
- Al Franken

The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right.
And I think that Christian voters should start looking
at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious
issue that speaks to the culture of life.
- Al Franken

The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years,
so they've had minor leagues - they've had local rightwing
guys who've become national rightwing guys,
and who build slowly, and that's how it goes.
We haven't had that.
It isn't like we have a farm team.
- Al Franken

But in the right-wing media, they do have a right-wing bias.
And they also have an agenda.
So their agenda is: we're an adjunct of the Republican Party,
and we're going push that agenda every day,
and, as you say, brand these stories that help further the right-wing cause.
- Al Franken

I also focus on Bush and his administration -
who do a lot of lying -
and how a right-wing media has allowed them to get
away with a lot of stuff that,
in a different media environment, they probably wouldn't
be able to get away with.
- Al Franken

Well, a lot of politics is communicating with people,
and obviously comedy has something to do with that.
I've been a producer and led people.
Also, being a comedian, you're under pressure.
- Al Franken

If you hear, day after day, liberals are rooting against armed forces,
that is eventually going to have an effect on soldiers
and troops who are actually going to believe that and it's wrong.
It's just wrong.
- Al Franken

I once asked the most fabulous couple I know,
Madonna and Guy Ritchie, how they kept things fresh
despite having been married for almost seven months.
'It's a job, Al,' Guy told me.
'We work at it every day.'
- Al Franken

Mistakes are a part of being human.
Appreciate your mistakes for what they are:
precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way.
Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least,
others can learn from.
- Al Franken

Yeah I called her up. She gave me a bunch of ...
about me not listening to her, or something.
I don't know, I wasn't really paying attention.
- the movie Dumb & Dumber (1994)

Yeah we all shine on, like the moon,
and the stars, and the sun.
- John Lennon

Oh yeah, I was one of the first guys writing comic books,
I wrote Captain America, with guys like Stan Lee,
who became famous later on with Marvel Comics.
- Mickey Spillane

Yeah, Hitman I suppose is most of the time a lighter read than Preacher;
it was always going to be.
- Garth Ennis

Yeah, I might remaster it, in fact I'm sure I would.
But all the songs will be the same.
- John Wozniak

Shaft was a pop culture figure along t he lines of,
I guess, Dirty Harry - except that he wasn't as much of a racist.
So yeah, I was always a fan.
- Jeffrey Wright

You make a lot of films, do you? You make a lot of films yourself? Yeah,
I'd like to see you make a film first before you get to talk about it.
What a jerk.
- George Clooney

If everyone is smoking weed, we've got to smoke crack.
If you're throwing rocks, we've got to throw bigger rocks.
- Nick Cannon

Yeah, I think that's sort of the American way.
And it's also the Polish way, it turns out.
- Bill Murray

Yeah, but now suddenly - you know, universities are
notoriously market oriented,
too.
- Jim Harrison

Yeah, but there's nobody who represents romance to me like Cary Grant.
- Aaron Eckhart

But, yeah, I'd love to do something else in someone else's movie.
- Jason Mewes

Oh yeah, I believe in God.
I think there's much more evidence that there is a
God than that there isn't.
I don't believe that Mother Theresa and Hitler go to the same place.
- David Zucker

If it were bad songs, yeah, I'd speak up,
but they're not bad songs.
- Tom Araya

Yeah, I guess everyone's had a reasonable amount of sex in their lives,
some less than others.
- Josh Silver

Yeah, I volunteered to support the troops,
and get out there and show them that we care about them.
- Gary Sinise

In some parts of life, like mathematics and science,
yeah, I was a genius.
I would top all the top scores you could ever measure it by.
- Steve Wozniak

Yeah, I'd like to get the girl and at least make it through the film.
- Aaron Eckhart

I just stood in the back, wore a good suit and said,
Yeah, that's happening.
- Nick Lowe

Rotten travesty.
Yeah.
Send me to jail for contempt.

Go ahead.
- Jack Kevorkian

Well, yeah, I wanted to resist the urge to thicken
everything up with instrumentation,
because I just felt like I was interested in seeing
how the songs did on their own.
- Joanna Newsom

I said to a bartender, 'Make me a zombie.'
He said 'God beat me to it.'

- Charlize Theron

I have a bit of a traveling addiction,
and, ah, yeah.
I went to, ah, Bali this summer.
- Fisher Stevens

Yeah, well, it did earlier - but as Bobby and I have played together,
our thing as a unit has become so strong that they
kind of had to get in where they fit in.
And most people do.
- Charlie Hunter

Yeah, there's a tendency to get pigeonholed in Hollywood.
- Mark Ruffalo

of being Michael Caine for a long time.

but of felony jury trials I was successful 105 of 106 times.

I felt so helpless to this business of not having any papers.
