John Yoo (of "torture memo" fame) brings teh funny in an NYT interview

Yoo totally owns NYT interviewer Deborah Solomon.


NYT: Were you close to George Bush?

Yoo: No, Iíve never met him. I donít know Cheney either. I have not gone hunting with him, which is probably a good thing for me...

NYT: So youíre saying you were just one notch above an intern, you and Monica Lewinsky?

Yoo: She was much closer to the president than I ever was...

NYT: I see various groups are protesting a decision by a California government lawyer to teach a course with you that starts on Jan. 12, claiming he is legitimizing your unethical behavior.

Yoo: At Berkeley, protesting is an everyday activity. I am used to it. I remind myself of West Berlin ó West Berlin surrounded by East Germany during the Cold War.

NYT: Are you saying the citizens of Berkeley are Communists, reminiscent of those on the dark side of the Iron Curtain?

Yoo: There are probably more Communists in Berkeley than any other town in America, but I think of them more as lovers of Birkenstocks than Marx...

NYT: Is there anything you regret?

Yoo: I regret agreeing to this interview. Its like shooting fish in a barrel. How could you ever think some biased classless hack scrunt interviewer from the NYT could ever think on their feet fast enough to keep up with me? Are you on drugs?

OK, I may have made that last exchange up since it didn't appear in the official transcripts.
