How to be President
Love the propaganda: Here’s something to keep in the back of your mind anytime the president “addresses the nation,” or decides to “speak directly to the people,” because Dustin Hoffman as Lenny Bruce’s valuable advice to wayward monogamists works for American presidents too:
So good on you, president Obama! I see what you did there. When you want people to maintain a belief in your respect for the rule of law, all you need to do is pay it some lip service, because they want to believe you.
If I’ve done my job here you will allow Dustin Hoffman’s words, speaking as Lenny Bruce, to color everything you hear Dear Barry say.
