I’m a big fan of Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me which is a news quiz on NPR every weekend. I was listening to it yesterday afternoon when I heard this quote which nearly drove me off the highway in fits of laughter…
Here is the executive summary of the speech the president gave in front of the big signs that read “Plan For Victory”: We’re going to leave, but not until the Iraqi troops are ready to take over, and, as a general told the New York Times, “They should be ready to take over by the time we leave.”
-Peter Siegel, host of Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me
I agree with Roy Blunt, Jr., who followed up that quote with the following response: “It’s seamless, really…”
Before I’m accused of being a left-wing-anti-war-democrat-who-doesn’t-know-what-Dubya-said…I read the transcript of Bush’s speech, and I pretty much came away with the same summary as Mr. Siegel. So I do know what Dubya said. /wink
One more from the show… Why Cameron Diaz would not be a good choice to play Maria Von Trapp should the Sound of Music be remade to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film’s release:
She’s not flighty as a feather. She’s not a darling. She’s not a demon. She’s not a lamb.
Don’t get it? When you’re done watching National Lampoon’s Vacation as I told you to do, go rent the Sound of Music. You’ll thank me.
