Near the beginning of the “Pine Barrens” of The Sopranos (and yes, I was pretty astounded that anyone in Hollywood had heard of New Jersey’s pine barrens), there was this amusing exchange:
Christopher Moltisanti: Russians? They’re not all bad.
Paulie ‘Walnuts’ Gualtieri: How ’bout the Cuban Missile Crisis? C********** flew four nuclear missiles into Cuba, pointed them right at us.
Christopher Moltisanti: That was real? I saw that movie, I thought it was bull****.
Evidently, White House press secretary Dana Perino skipped that “movie” entirely.
Update: So did Mike Huckabee, who’s looking increasingly not ready for prime time, let alone HBO.
