"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

I Look Forward To Posting This Seventy-Four More Times Between Now And January, 2009

March 6, 2003:

Q What can you say tonight, sir, to the sons and the daughters of the Americans who served in Vietnam to assure them that you will not lead this country down a similar path in Iraq?

THE PRESIDENT: That's a great question. Our mission is clear in Iraq. Should we have to go in, our mission is very clear: disarmament... it's very clear what we intend to do. And our mission won't change. Our mission is precisely what I just stated.

November 28, 2006:

Tomorrow, I'm going to travel to Jordan where I will meet with the Prime Minister of Iraq...We'll continue to be flexible, and we'll make the changes necessary to succeed. But there's one thing I'm not going to do: I'm not going to pull our troops off the battlefield before the mission is complete...

The war on terror we fight today is more than a military conflict; it is the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century. And in this struggle, we can accept nothing less than victory for our children and our grandchildren.

I personally would like to saddle my grandchildren with some defeat. It'll keep their heads on straight, keep 'em modest, and not all entitlement-like, demanding new playstations every six months.

You think this will not matter after Jan 2009?

I don't see what the problem is, Jon. The president clearly understands that Saddam Hussein has not yet been disarmed, that's all. What's wrong with that?


Obviously, while in jail, he's reconstituted his spitball program. It's even possible he's made contact with other prisoners in an effort to obtain (gasp) pencils... Is that sixteen words yet?

the rude pundit puts it a slightly different way.
