I like his books because they’re the right size [holds up book] for me to have time to read them.

Gary Lippman
I’m going to ask if I can work on his [Texas] gubernatorial campaign. But I also know he’s friends with some people I find unsavory. I’m sure you know who I mean.

Miriam Cintron
He seemed like he’d rather be anywhere else. Not that he’s uncomfortable—more like he’s making fun of himself.

Eddie Goldman
That we’re here in Chelsea, and we’ve all been waiting for an hour to meet a guy in a black cowboy hat, smoking a cigar, says something tremendous about America.

David Kramer
I would definitely vote for him. Though actually, after waiting so long on this line, I’m not so sure.
