Quote of the day

If you can follow the antecedents and the syntax in this you are doing very well (actually you must be on drugs, and I don't mean "performance-enhancing" ones), but the end (in bold) is all too clear:
Q Just a couple quick follow ups on Iran. On the NIE, did you -- were you, in effect, distancing yourself from the conclusions of the NIE, and these guys --

THE PRESIDENT: No, I was making it clear it was an independent judgment, because what they basically came to the conclusion of, is that he's trying -- you know, this is a way to make sure that all options aren't on the table. So I defended our intelligence services, but made it clear that they're an independent agency; that they come to conclusions separate from what I may or may not want.
The nerve! Don't they know they're supposed to start from what George wants and work backwards? How dare they think that a "National Intelligence Estimate" is supposed to be based on "intelligence" (in both senses of the word)?
