59. He's not stiff
He's flexible, like a Slinky. He was a Democrat when it was convienent, then he became a Republican when it was convienent. He supported Bush and the war while it was convienent, then all of a sudden he doesn't want a troop surge in Baghdad. Anbar Province, yes, Baghdad, no.

I've been here only 18 monhts and I don't like him either!
