Didn't Bushy say that

No further troops would be sent to Iraq? Am I mis-remembering? I swear he was quoted as saying something along the lines of no new troops in, no troops leaving.

Jack's, that "No new taxes" is a common misunderstanding. He was actually being completely truthful when he said "Know new taxes"

...and he doesn't like broccali. When that came out the relevent farmers were on his case - leading to the line "...I'm President of the United States and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli." and you think this one is surreal.

In the sense that a fox is essentially a dog, yes, I think she qualifies. :)
