"Outrageous comments are nothing new to the conservative media -- one might even call them a defining characteristic. The Most Outrageous Comment of the 2009 came when Fox News host Glenn Beck asserted that Obama is a "racist" who has "exposed himself as a guy" with "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," but right-wing media figures made plenty of other unhinged remarks throughout the year:"

Limbaugh on Obama: "We are being told that we have to hope he succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles ... because his father was black"

Savage declares: "The white Christian heterosexual married male is the epitome of everything right with America"

Limbaugh fill-in Davis: Cash for Clunkers "helps your shiftless cousin buy more meth," lets you buy "carton of Luckys"

Boortz: People living in Katrina trailers, Section 8 housing and on welfare shouldn't be allowed to vote

Robertson: Many "made homosexual because of a coach or a guidance counselor or some other male figure who has abused them"

# Beck guest Scheuer: "The only chance we have as a country right now is" for bin Laden to "detonate a major weapon" in U.S.

Great list. I need to listen to talk radio more. Sorry, but you have to admit that some of them hit the nail right on the head. LOL
