George Bush: I understand you have a controversial theory, professor. Skippy: Yes, sir. I believe most voters are looking for weak, craven leadership. George Bush: So what's your best advice, professor? Skippy: A change of course, Mr. Vice President...shift the campaign debate away from ideology and issues and towards character and competence!

George Bush: Huh? Man: He's your evil twin Skippy in disguise! George Bush: What? Skippy: Damn!
