Quotes

Robert Bettencourt: [after watching a campaign ad by his opponent Clemont 'Cappy' Castles that morphs the image of President Obama into Senator Bettencourt] So, I'm Obama now?
Aaron Stimson: It's uncanny. I never noticed it before.
Robert Bettencourt: And this stuff works?
Aaron Stimson: It's doing well in the free media. They love Cappy. They think he's a hoot.
Robert Bettencourt: And I gotta debate this clown?
Aaron Stimson: Uh, yes. But he'll be surrounded by fellow clowns. They'll distract him. All you have to do is occasionally duck.
