Quotes The President: [after deciding on a deadline that won't interfere with "All My Children"] It was almost half a century ago that another president , Dwight D. Eisenhower, found it necessary to use US troops to enforce the constitutional rights of the US government... If necessary I will do the same. I am therefore declaring a deadline of 67 and a half hours from now...
Alan Manieski: [In news room] 67 and a... WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?
The President: ...by which time the state of Idaho must comply with the constitutional prerogatives of these United States of America as they were delineated by our founding fathers.
Governor of Idaho: [At Idaho Capitol Building] What an asshole.
