Quotes

Natty: There is no such thing as a little mistake in Washington. It doesn't matter that George Bush was never mystified by a supermarket scanner, or that Bill Clinton's haircut never held up any aiplane. All that matters is that it's repeated over and over again until it becomes fact and/or sells enough newspapers and the retractions are printed on page 78!

This Was A Truly Terrible Show

I flipped it on once and Delta Burke was giving a speech about 'wive' beating to a bunch of fat-cat male senators. It then proceeds to have violin music or whatever to video of women being beaten that had me confused as to whether it was funny or just plain bad amateur acting. The women's heads were being swung violently and they were bleeding all over the place. It was a truly awful show.
