Shorter Joe Scarborough

From Bill Maher's September 9, 2005, HBO program "Real Time":

[Joe Scarborough]: Now, people have been talking about the need to appoint a hurricane czar. I was asked, “What do you think about that?” I said, “Well, we do have a hurricane czar, and it's the director of FEMA. When Bill Clinton was president, we had somebody named James Lee Witt. He was a great FEMA director. I flew around the Gulf Coast with him three or four times when hurricanes hit down here ... and when you have the right people in place, it makes a big difference.

To which there is this reply:
[Bill Maher]: He would have been better at handling this during sex than George Bush was.
