Speaking of the Right Stuff....

Overheard on the CSPAN 2 live feed just before the debate started:

John Edwards : Dear Lord, please don't let me fuck up.
Director : I didn't quite copy that. Say again, please.
John Edwards : I said everything's A-OK.

Dick Cheney : Hey Ridley, you got any Beeman's?
Gwen Ifel: Yeah, I think I got a stick.
Dick Cheney : Loan me some, will you? I'll pay you back later.
Gwen Ifel : Fair enough.

UPDATE: Free linkety bling-bling to the person who correctly identifies the source of the above quotes.

Very obscure reference with the "Beeman's" comment. Have you been reading Lileks again?

Nah! They're two quotes in a reference to the previous post about the movie The Right Stuff....

I think both quotes were from Chuck Yeager in the movie.

I take that back. The first quote was Alan Shepard on the launch pad.

I may be off, but i'm going with one of the "Alien" movies for the second quote.
