Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for September 17, 2006
Mike: Do I want to watch Rumsfeld? My goodness gracious no! Voice: Secretary Rumsfeld, are you... Donald Rumsfeld: Excuse me, Senator, but I'll ask the questions. Is it more efficient? Yes. Does it allow me to make the points I want? Of course. Can I use it to filibuster? My gracious, yes! Does it help me avoid unwelcome questions if I frame them all myself? Unquestionably. Does this allow me to control the temp of a pointless interrogation by ignorant legislators whom I hold in undisguised contempt? Heavens to betsy... betsy... have I forgotten my own question? Possibly. Should I care? Goodness no! Am I out of here? You bet!
