Andy Borowitz On CNN This Morning

Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker was on CNN this morning, and was quite the star. I am paraphrasing from memory here, but he said roughly the following:

On the desirability of Saddam going into exile:

Well, obviously a peaceful settlement would be a good thing. But we have to be clear that Saddam must go somewhere where he will be out of sight and cannot stir up trouble against us. I would suggest the Phil Donahue Show.

And, on Bush's State of the Union address:

I thought the most implausible statement was that the U.S. economy is improving. Perhaps, instead of showing us proof about Saddam, Bush could show us proof about that - maybe a satellite photo of someone being hired.

Thank you, Andy. And, while channel-flipping, I saw the tease for a CNBC Special Report, hyping an interview with the German Ambassador to the US, which I paraphrase thusly: Why does Germany stand against the European Union, and how can it end its growing isolation? OUCH.
