Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

This quote comes to me from a pal who saw it on TV (there are days when I wish I had a TV, and today is one of those days, because this quote is priceless) …

Diane Sawyer: “Why not let Karl Rove go up there and show he has nothing to hide? Testify, under oath, and with a transcript? Let everyone see it?”

Tony Snow: “This is what I love, this Karl Rove obsession. Let’s back off. First, the question is: Do you want Karl Rove on TV, or do you want the truth?”

Diane Sawyer: “Why can’t you have both?”

    I am disturbed by the fact that the White House press corps shows up when Tony Snow is going to speak. Everyone knows everything he will say will be a lie. What is the point? Can somebody please explain this to me?

    The corps should boycott WH press conferences, demanding that the speaker be under oath, with a transcript.

    “Do you want Karl Rove on TV, or do you want the truth?”

    Diane Sawyer: “Why can’t you have both?”

    Best major network joke on Aristotle’s Law of the Excluded Middle in quite a while…

    I think Diane Sawyer is one of the best journalists in America, she gets to the point, she is a very intelligent woman. The conservatives don’t like her because she’s not afraid to go after them.

    Priceless! I had a similar response when I read that the deciderator didn’t want to see Congress issue subpoenas to “honorable public servants”. Since Rove is neither honorable nor a public servant, W should be OK with a subpoena for him…
