    I've heard there is even a song with these exact words of his as the lyrics... :D Unknowns

    and some more that are equally as odd:

    I wonder if he ever went home at night and slapped his forehead and said to himself "What was I thinking?"

    I wonder if they are real quotes as said, or if taken out of context. Ah well, I'll never know, nor particularly care, in the end. Tomorrow is for the trap range.

    Looks to me like real quotes. Look at some of the lines that are the same and they appear one after the other. Seems like he started a sentence, got interupted and restarted. Could very well be real quotes. Fake or real, it fits him to a T. These politicians in this day are asked a question and instead of answering it with whatever explanation or thought they have, they dodge by either repeating the question or they start to answer only to jog to another point. Remind anyone of the old shell game? Except if you pick the right shell, you'll find that the peanut has been smashed to incomprehencible goo.

    Heard this somewhere (possibly that movie "man of the house"with robin williams )
    "Never answer the question you are asked, answer the one you wish you were asked"
