West Wing quote of the day

In this White House:

TV Moderator : "Ainsley Hayes, is that true?"
Ainsley : "No, it's not."
TV Moderator : "Is Sam Seaborn lying?"
Ainsley : "Lying's an awfully strong word... yes, he's lying. And we should tell the truth about education. The bill contained plenty of money for new textbooks - also, computer literacy, school safety, physical plant. The difference is we wanted to give the money directly to communities, and let them decide how best to spend it... on the off chance that the needs of Lincoln High in Dayton are different than the needs of Crenshaw High in South Central L.A."
...
Ainsley : "The bill contained plenty of money for textbooks, Mark, and anyone who says otherwise is flat-out lying. And we should tell the truth about this... textbooks are important, if for no other reason than they accurately place the town of Kirkwood in California and not in Oregon."

Dear, dear Ainsley Hayes.
