Ten years of talking by public figures makes for some interesting (and very often not-so-smart sounding) bloopers. After the jump we’ve posted the Huffington Post’s roundup of the dumbest quotes of the decade — sans attribution. Wager a guess on who said what and highlight the black box to find out if you’re right. Be warned: Some of these gems are much easier to identify than others.
