Quotable Quotes (The 'Rolling Fast' Edition)

"A hunger strike, or mortification of the flesh, is a noble and moral way of expressing one's moral dedication to a cause. But . . . wait. What the stars are actually planning on participating in is a "rolling" hunger strike. You've never heard of a rolling hunger strike before? How does that work? Well, one fasts for a day, then passes the obligation to another who fasts for twenty-four hours. That's not a hunger strike. That's not even the beginning of a good dieting attempt. That's maybe what a sixteen-year old girl does to ensure her prom gown won't be overly tight." -- Mahone Dunbar

"Personally, if celebrities have to “put their bodies on the line for peace,” I’d much rather see them bulk up. How about if Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow promise to put on 20 pounds for every month Mr. Bush refuses to end his illegal war? Absent that, it’s hard to see what a “rolling fast” does except confirm the vague suspicion one or two Americans may harbor that politically active celebrities are a lot of vain dilettantes unwilling to discombobulate their pampered lifestyles." -- Mark Steyn
