From Our Department of What Could Possibly Go Wrong? -
Her: Ok, so you're the presumptive nominee -it's a done deal. Now don't you think it would be nice if you shared some of that center-stage love?
Him: "I know that I don't walk alone, and I know that if I can get myself out of the way that I can maybe carry out in some small way...."
Her: Focus, honey, focus. What I'm saying is, it can't possibly change anything for you if I make one of the prime time speeches during the convention. By the way, Bill's got nothing much to do now, so maybe he could have a spot, too?
Him: "I think that whether you are looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade."
Her: And my PUMAs insist on demonstrating thier lingering dissatisfaction. Talk about your bitters! Maybe if we could just place my name in nomination alongside yours during the traditional state-by-state delegation roll call vote? That would go a long way to creating party unity.
Him: "Evil does exist.I think it has to be confronted. It has to be confronted squarely. Now, the one thing that I think is very important is for to us have some humility in how we approach the issue of confronting evil, because a lot of evil’s been perpetrated based on the claim that we were trying to confront evil."
Her: Is that a yes or a no?
Him: "In the name of good, and I think, you know, one thing that’s very important is having some humility in recognizing that just because we think that our intentions are good, doesn’t always mean that we’re going to be doing good."Her: * blink * *blink *
Her: OOO-kay. I'll take that as a yes.
Her: (whispers into cellphone) Hello, Bill? Like candy from a baby. Call Chelsea and tell her it's a go. Mama's coming back!
