CARTER: I hope we can take the opportunity to remember what Coretta Scott King stood for.
BUSH, JR.: Coretta, Coretta, terruh, war, don’t listen to Kayne West.
CLINTON: Yes, I too am a white ex-President. I’m sorry. But don’t blame me. I spoke in many African-American churches when I had something to gain, such as a second presidential term. Now, not so much the case. But Hilary, who is likely running for President in ’08, might do this too. This is what Coretta would have wanted: blatant opportunism. Have I finished seducing you?
LOWERY: George Bush doesn’t care about black people.
MICHAEL BOLTON: They put me here because Stevie Wonder’s feeling a little under the weather.
BUSH, SR.: Reverend Lowery, shut up, boy, and shine my shoes.
ANGELOU: I know why the caged bird sings. And so do you. Let’s just hope the press is awake to spot the absurdities we’re experiencing today.
