Celebrity opinions: Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before he goes after the problems on the other side of the road. We need to help him realize you don't get anywhere crossing roads all willy-nilly.

OPRAH: Well, I can see that Mr. Chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So I'm going to give him a brand new car so that he can just drive across the road and get on with his life. And then maybe push his new book, "The Road Not Crossed."

GEORGE W. BUSH:We shouldn't worry or really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just need to know if the chicken is on OUR side of the road, or not. This chicken is either for us or against us. There is no middle ground here!

The Bush is so true that it's scary, isn't it?

Mr. Bush does seem to come across as rather stilted and arbitrary, even Puritanical sometimes. This is probably an unfair portrayal brought on by media selectivity in reporting what he says. I am quite confident that in more private settings where he lets his hair down and is in his element George W. is actually human. It is just when acting Presidential that he takes on this comical cowboy-killer-diller persona. Trouble is, we elected him to speak for our WHOLE country and represent us to the world...

None of us is perfect, obviously, but people in positions of influence, such as the three voices I picked here, need to control themselves and often don't.
