Senator Chuck Hagel
PRS: Senator Hagel, newspapers are reporting that this Monday you plan to announce your decision whether to seek the Republican Party’s nomination for the Presidency in 2008. Can you confirm that?
Hagel: That’s true; I do plan to make such an announcement.
PRS: Do you believe that you have a realistic chance of getting the Republican Party’s nomination?
Hagel: Of course I believe so, otherwise I would not even consider it. You don’t think I have a shot?
PRS: About as much of a chance as you have of sticking a feather up your ass and flying across the Atlantic Ocean.
Hagel: This interview is over!
PRS: Have a play date with Tim Russert, do you?
Hagel: I question your patriotism.
A Can of Wax Beans
PRS: So what’s up with you?
Can of Wax Beans: Well, I’m thinking of seeking the Republican Party’s nomination for the Presidency in 2008.
PRS: Wow. That’s impressive, you being a can of wax beans and all.
Can of Wax Beans: You think I have a shot?
PRS: Better than Chuck Hagel’s, I’d say.
