Top-10 Quote-of-the-decade #5, by
master military strategist G.W. Bush

Social satire, often comic. Let the corporate media fret about the Top 10 fashion blunders, TV bloopers, waist-trimming foods, tennis players, and the like. We'll  read or play recordings of more oddball Top-10 lists:

(a) Quotations, 2000-2009; (b) Reasons to visit New Zealand; (c) High-level political sex scandals (Bill & Monica didn't even make the list!); and--this ya gotta hear--(4) Military combat rifles.

I add a few footnotes but--honest!--I didn't make ANY of this stuff up.

This program is a replay of NWN #101 (Feb. 2010).

Top-10 Political Sex Scandal #6: James Buchanan (President 1857-1861). His lover, William Rufus King, was known to his critics as "Miss Nancy."  Alas, King died before he could become First Lady.  At the time of his death, in 1853, King was Vice President
