Quotes of the Morning: Hello Cleveland!

“Monday brought Fearless Leader to Cleveland, Ohio. He’s apparently on the same tour as Spinal Tap, just a little behind and with slightly less intelligence..”

“First- just if I might correct a misperception, I don't think we ever said, at least I know I didn't say that there was a direct connection between September 11th and Saddam Hussein."
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“No sir, those exact words never escaped your lips. Instead you said this..”

"Saddam Hussein aids and protects terrorists, including members of al-Qaeda."
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, January 28, 2003

“Which, since al-Qaeda is the group that is believed to have caused 9-11 (unless you have your tinfoil cap on too tight), that would seem to indicate that you were, well, linking Saddam and September 11. It seems that Dubya is under a lot of stress. Let’s give him a little time off and give the more intelligent group to tour Cleveland a little time to fill in..”

“Hello Cleveland!”
-Spinal Tap

“You said you listen to members of Congress, and there have been growing calls from some of those members for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld; also from his own former subordinates like U.S. Army Major General Paul Eaton, who described him in a recent editorial as ‘incompetent and tactically inept.’ Do you feel that personally you've ever gotten bad advice in the conduct of the war in Iraq? And do you believe Rumsfeld should resign?”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever.”
-David St. Hubbins, Spinal Tap

“Secretary Rumsfeld has said that if civil war should break out in Iraq, he's hopeful that Iraqi forces can handle it. If they can't, sir, are you willing to sacrifice American lives to keep Iraqis from killing one another?”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“David St. Hubbins: We say, ‘Love your brother.’ We don't say it really, but...

Nigel Tufnel: We don't literally say it.
David St. Hubbins: No, we don't say it.
Nigel Tufnel: We don't really, actually mean it.
David St. Hubbins: No, we don't believe it either, but...
Nigel Tufnel: But we're not racists.
David St. Hubbins: But that message should be clear.”
-This Is Spinal Tap

“Will there come a day -- and I'm not asking you when, not asking for a timetable -- will there come a day when there will be no more American forces in Iraq?”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you.”
-David St. Hubbins, Spinal Tap

“Iraq's Interim Prime Minister said Sunday that violence is killing an average of 50 to 60 people a day, and that, ‘if this is not civil war, then God knows what civil war is.’ Do you agree with Mr. Allawi that Iraq has fallen into civil war?”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“Dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported.”
-David St. Hubbins, Spinal Tap

“Mr. President, in the upcoming elections I think many Republicans would tell you one of the big things they're worried about is the national debt, which was $5.7 trillion when you took office, and is now nearly $8.2 trillion, and Congress has just voted to raise it to $8.9 trillion. That would be a 58-percent increase. You've yet to veto a single bill, sir -- I assume that means you're satisfied with this.”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“Derek Smalls: I mean, people should be envying us, you know.

David St. Hubbins: I envy us.
Derek Smalls: Yeah.
David St. Hubbins: I do.
Derek Smalls: Me too”.
-This Is Spinal Tap

“Derek Smalls: That's not to say I haven't had my visionary moments. I've taken acid seventy... five, seventy-six times.

Marty DiBergi: 76?
Derek Smalls: Yeah, so I've had my moments in the sky.”
-This Is Spinal Tap

“What, sir, do you think the impact of the discussion of impeachment and censure does to you and this office, and to the nation during a time of war, and in the context of the election?”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“Making a big thing out of it would have been a good idea.”
-Derek Smalls, Spinal Tap

“You've said during your presidency that you don't pay that much attention to the polls, but there is a handful that have come back, and they all say the exact same thing: A growing number of Americans are questioning the trustworthiness of you and this White House. Does that concern you?”
-Question to George ‘Dubya’ Bush, March 21, 2006

“Well, I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation.”
-David St. Hubbins, Spinal Tap
