Laugh Lines

September 16, 2000

Off and On: "George W. Bush . . . announced he has begun preparing for the presidential debates this fall. There's really only one thing he has to remember: If the little black switch is up, that means the microphone is on." (Argus Hamilton)

On a Power Trip: "Whenever the leaders from around the world come to New York City, they go nuts. . . . They had all these people--there hasn't been so much ego and so much raw thirst for power and aggression in one room since, well, I guess since the last time Hillary Clinton dined alone." (David Letterman)

To Swear By: "Allegedly, Bobby Knight grabbed a student, cursed at him, and . . . for that, he lost his job. For swearing at the kid. . . . Apparently, there are higher standards for being a basketball coach in Indiana than there are to be a Republican nominee for president." (Jay Leno)
