"not only will hurricane victims be taken care of, they'll all get a pony and some whipped cream"
From Bob The Angry Flower (a favourite!):
Kurt Vonnegut on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart:
Vonnegut: I want to say something in defense of the president. He is not the dumbest man at the White House. The Secretary of Defense is the dumbest man in the White House. He is so dumb he thought he could take over a country of 25 million people, Muslims, and their oil, with 200,000 American soldiers who didn't even know how to say "Hello" in Arabic... And we're supposed to be giving them democracy. Well, democracy means that after a hundred years you have to give up your slaves. And after a hundred and fifty years, you have to let your women vote. And during the early period all kinds of genocide and ethnic cleansing are quite all right. So that's what we've got over there.
Stewart: It's sad to see you lose your edge.
