This is an entry from Moby's online journal:

Meet The Press
2/9/2004 - New York City

Russert: Two polls out this weekend show you --

President Bush: See there, you're quoting polls.

Russert: you're trailing John Kerry in both U.S.A. Today and Newsweek polls by seven and five points.

President Bush: Yeah.

Russert: This is what John Kerry had to say last year. He said that his colleagues are appalled at the "President's lack of knowledge. They've managed him the same way they've managed Ronald Reagan. They send him out to the press for one event a day. They put him in a brown jacket and jeans and get him to move some hay or move a truck, and all of a sudden he's the Marlboro Man. I know this guy. He was two years behind me at Yale. I knew him, and he's still the same guy."

Did you know him at Yale?

President Bush: No.

Russert: How do you respond to that?

President Bush: Politics. I mean, this is-- you know, if you close your eyes and listen carefully to what you just said, it sounds like the year 2000 all over again.

Russert: You were both in Skull and Bones, the secret society.

President Bush: It's so secret we can't talk about it.

Russert: What does that mean for America? The conspiracy theorists are going to go wild.

President Bush: I'm sure they are. I don't know. I haven't seen the (unintel) yet. (Laughs)

Russert: Number 322.

President Bush: First of all, he's not the nominee, and I look forward

Russert: Are you prepared to lose?

and my favorite quote from gw's interview on sunday, and maybe it was just a little slip up, but gw said:

"You know, we want to harm America."
-George Bush, Meet the Press, Feb. 8, 2004.

Okay, so I'm Canadian. But American politics are just so scandalous, it's like choosing between Paris Hilton and Doris Day.
